MORGAN -- The Morgan County Council has a bad case of buyer's remorse, so even though it has already spent nearly $100,000 to build an animal control facility, the council will return a bond and scrap current plans.
The council unanimously voted to halt all work on the project, pay all outstanding debts to architects and contractors, and return a $600,000 bond. The council has already spent $95,200 for the project.
"The budget is extremely tight this year. Right now there is no way to make the numbers work," said Councilman Ned Mecham, who opposed incurring the debt since taking his seat on the council in January 2011. "There is no way the county can do it."
