ZANESVILLE, Ohio – The Head Dog Warden of Muskingum County met with County Commissioners to discuss their new building updates.
The Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office donated their old evidence and impound building to the Dog Wardens so they can move their operations to a bigger facility. Head Dog Warden Bryan Catlin said they discussed future plans for the new building.
“Where we’re at with the new build for the Dog Wardens Office, Dog Warden and Adoption Center,” Catlin said. “We’re starting, getting closer for putting out bids. I think it’s probably going to be within the next month or so.”
Catlin said he is starting to get more excited but he doesn’t want to get too excited until dirt moves.
“I’ve been up there at the facility now for 18 years and it’s starting to wear on me a little bit but I think once I start seeing more of a progress. as far as construction goes, I think i’ll get a little bit more excited,” Catlin said. “Where we’re at now is over 60 years old and anybody that’s been up there will definitely know the reason.”
Their estimate cost for the new building project will be about $657,000. Once the bid is selected, they hope to complete the project within the next 5 to 6 months.
