OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - The city of Oxford will form a committee to conduct a search for someone to take over operations of the city animal shelter.

The item was discussed during a recessed meeting of the board this morning.

The current group operating the facility says it will cease operations September 30.

The city owns the building and has set aside $135,000 in the next budget year for the facility.

The funding is part of a nearly $31 million budget approved during the same meeting this morning.
