Superior City Councilors unanimously approved just shy of $2 million dollars for construction of a new animal shelter building on Tuesday.

The City of Superior's contract with Animal Allies ended at the end of April. At that time, one option was to send strays across the bridge to facilities in Duluth.

 But after a passionate push from residents, councilors voted to keep a shelter in the city by giving control of the city shelter to the Humane Society of Douglas County May 1. Former councilor Mick Mackenzie, whose last meeting assured a shelter would stay in the city, was among the most vocal supporters.  

"It's taken a lot longer than what I would have expected but we finally got there tonight," Mackenzie said after the vote awarded a $1.98 construction contract to Four Star Construction. "The community has embraced this project, they've accepted it, they've wanted it. It's something that the animals have deserved." 

The new facility will be located in Bear Creek Park near Moccasin Mike Road when completed.
