Supervisors grill Brown on budget

Candace Brown, King George School division superintendent, was called to the podium to answer questions from supervisors at last Tuesday’s meeting regarding a late-year funding request by the School Board.

Supervisors delay decision on use of vacated Animal Shelter

KING GEORGE  --  The Board of Supervisors decided to delay making a decision on private use of the former county animal shelter until late summer.

St. Seton’s Orphaned Animals Executive Director Carl Allard asked the board to consider allowing the organization to lease the vacated building at 11220 Henry Griffin Rd. for use as low cost spay/neuter clinic at the April 5 meeting.

But a study to transform the property into a recreation area is already slated.

Board chair Joe Grzeika said it would be unfair to make a commitment to anyone at this time since the study may show that maintaining the building is not a feasible option.

A complete account of the discussion at the meeting will appear in the April 13 edition of the Journal.

According to Board of Supervisors Chairman Joe Grzeika, any proposal needs to follow established
