Floyd County Council approves additional funding for parks

City, county to meet this month to discuss split


FLOYD COUNTY — Council approves shelter funding

The council approved a $48,000 additional appropriation to the New Albany-Floyd County Animal Shelter. The shelter had not seen an increase in its budget for the past five years. The funds will help get the shelter through the rest of the year.

“If we don’t pay it they [city] will be splitting up the animal shelter,” Councilwoman Dana Fendley joked. “We don’t want them to think we don’t pay our fair share.”

Animal Shelter Director David Hall said some of his employees are concerned the shelter may be next to split.

“It’s scary for my employees,” Hall said.

Attorney fees

The council approved $100,000 additional appropriation for attorney fees for the upcoming murder trials of David Camm and William Gibson.

Council President Ted Heavrin said Gibson is being held in suicide watch in another county at a cost of $2,000 a month. The money will come out of riverboat funds.

Heavrin also said it looks like Floyd County will receive $250,000 next year in riverboat funds from Harrison County.
