Issues continue to pop up that require temporarily shutting down Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center.

ADA compliance upgrades will restrict access to the facility for the next two weeks, or longer.

“We were told that once the concrete is poured, it would be 10-14 days for it to set, depending on the weather,” said Animal Control officer Brandi Bouldin. “They have begun the prep work for pouring the concrete. I can’t give you an exact day of when we will reopen because I just don’t know right now.”

The parking area in front of the building is being paved. According to ADA, the facility needs a handicap parking space with proper access aisle, an accessible pathway to the front door from the parking space, and a parking sign that designates the space, among other items.

“We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause,” said Bouldin.

Warren County has until December 2019 to bring all its properties into compliance or risk losing state gasoline tax money given to local governments by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
