Officials say plans are moving forward to reopen the Spencer County Animal Shelter.
County commissioners say they have a new ordinance that expands the animal control board from seven to nine members.
The commission has already appointed eight of those members. They are also searching for a new shelter director.
The shelter was closed in October of 2018 after an employee was accused of euthanizing cats in a freezer. State police investigated that claim, but no charges were filed.
