The north county animal shelter gets another supporter. Mayor Tom O’Malley addressed the issue. He feels Atascadero should join Paso Robles in exploring options to the county’s plan to build a $17 million dollar animal shelter. He read a letter he and Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin are sending to the board of supervisors. No other Atascadero council members objected to the letter at last night’s meeting, so it will be mailed to the supervisors. Meanwhile, the cities of Paso Robles and Atascadero will explore options for a north county animal shelter.
