|Winnsboro opens new animal shelter|
After months of controversy over the old city animal shelter, Winnsboro has a new one.
Mayor Jackie Johnson said on Tuesday that the facility the city purchased for $14,000 has replaced the animal shelter off of Robinson Road that brought a criminal investigation against Winnsboro officials and employees.
City employees finished work on the new facility located in Winnsboro Industrial Park on Friday, Johnson said.
"The kennel has been installed and modified. We have opened an office for our humane personnel there and the kennel has been fenced in and lit up," Johnson said. "It's now operational as a holding facility."
