DeWitt County Board Chair Gives Update on Animal Shelter

The DeWitt County animal shelter has been in the spotlight in the last month and the search for a new administrator is ongoing and a new position is in the works as well.


DeWitt County Board Chairperson Dan Matthews explains the leadership of the animal shelter will be recreated. He feels they needed to revamp the staffing in order to give the animals the proper care.



According to Matthews, they've held interviews for the administrator role and feel they have a good potential candidate for that position.



Matthews explains there is also work to be done in getting the County's ordinances in line with the municipalities that they serve. 



For Matthews, the shelter should work and function best when you get the right people in positions and there is an understanding of everyone's role in the operation. He hopes the changes will allow for that to happen going forward.
