LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - After three and a half hours in executive session, the Lubbock City Council approved the purchase of land for the new animal shelter.
The site is located near 66th and SE Loop 289 and costs $220,000. Council members unanimously approved the purchase.
The shelter itself could cost as much as $6 million. Years ago, voters approved $3 million in bonds to pay for the project. Construction is expected to start sometime in the next two months.
