Ground broken on animal shelter

More than two years after the ceremonial “groundbreaking,” heavy equipment has started breaking real ground at Cypress Avenue and Baldwin Road for the Leflore County Humane Society’s new animal shelter. The composition of the soil, described as “gumbo,” is unsuitable for a foundation until 5 feet of it is removed and replaced with usable soil. When completed, the facility will have 6,200 square feet on the 4.25-acre parcel donated for the project jointly by Leflore County and the city of Greenwood. The cost of the project is expected to reach $800,000, and the Humane Society is still seeking donations.
