The Citizens Committee on Animal Welfare Site Selection and Director Screening had its second meeting on Monday.
They didn't make any final decisions, but they did narrow down their choices.
Committee members narrowed the applicants for Director to two, out of six applicants and all agreed whoever takes over will have the final authority on which animals are euthanized.
They plan to visit shelters in Rockdale, Walton and Gwinnett counties to see what they can implement in Bibb County's new shelter.
They also tossed around the idea of building the new shelter in Central City Park.
"We're trying to find a space that the county owns so we can put all of the money into the shelter itself, that's the real goal but as you heard in there, they're still kind of on the fence about some of those spots. I think it might be a good idea once they get out and see some of the other shelters, then that might help them with their decision on the best way to move forward here in Macon." explains Kevin Barrere, Public Affairs Officer for the county.
Members of the committee also looked at a spot off of Highway 247 and Houston Road, but the entrance is off of an exit ramp and they didn't think it was easily accessible or centrally located.
