TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Tupelo city council has decided the old Tupelo-Lee Humane Society building on South Gloster Street is no longer worth keeping.

In a board meeting on Monday, the city's attorney Ben Logan confirmed they have gotten the demolition approved and will start as soon as possible.

The city will also be paving a small road that connects the land to another property down the road to help solve a litigation issue.

JJ Rentals is the new owner of the building and land.

There is still no word on what they are going to do with it yet.
