Animal Shelter Receives Grant for Emergency Generator
SHELBYVILLE, KY.  Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger announces the purchase and installation of an emergency generator for the Shelby County Animal Shelter.
Acting Animal Control Director and Deputy Judge-Executive Rusty Newton states, “Our shelter tries to set the precedent for other animal shelters by providing the necessary resources to continue to function even during the most adverse weather condition, i.e. power outages.”
The emergency generator will enable Shelby County to prepare for, respond to, and mitigate the adverse effects thrust upon the county due to the consequence of a manmade or natural disaster.
Funding for the emergency generator was possible through Area Development Funds appropriated through the Kentucky General Assembly to be used for community projects.  This year’s appropriation was in the amount of $7,728.47, with a total project cost of $11,860.00.
