BRAZIL, Ind. (WTHI) - The City of Brazil and the Clay County Humane Society have an agreement.

The city board approved a contract with the shelter at a meeting Wednesday night. The shelter board approved the contract earlier this week. Both parties agree the shelter will provide 24-hour service to the city any time there is a stray or neglected animal that needs picked-up.

Like past contracts, the city will pay the shelter twenty thousand dollars for services in 2018.

Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham says the humane shelter has been providing the service even though there was not an official deal at the start of the year.

Both parties say they are looking forward to working together.

Clay County Humane Society Manager Michelle Cannava says, "I just feel great about the fact that, here in the past few months, the shelter and the city have done a great job communicating and meeting on a regular basis and putting this whole thing together."

Mayor Wyndham says, "I think what we have decided to do, we hadn't really been doing it in the past, is we need to sit down after maybe four or five months and evaluate it."

Fifteen thousand dollars was originally budgeted for the service but the board approved a five thousand dollar appropriation to fund the contract.

The mayor say the shelter will still get money owed from last year and the 2018 contract will cover services rendered already this year.
