There are only so many pieces of the pie to go around and everyone has a different idea of what the city needs to spend money on. Schools, safety and roads are some of those priorities that take precedence. But when voters head to the polls Nov. 6, the time has come (and some would say is long overdue) to approve bonding the money to build a new Shelton Animal Shelter.
Question 4 on the referendum will ask voters to approve bonding $1.4 million for the shelter. We encourage residents to vote 'yes.'
