GOSHEN — The Elkhart County Board of Commissioners has approved interlocal agreements from Middlebury, Wakarusa, Goshen, Elkhart and Bristol for funds that will go toward the Humane Society in 2014.

In late January the board signed a contract to renew its annual agreement with the Humane Society. The county is responsible for contributing $170,000 to the organization for animal control services and shelter management.

The county council will vote whether to approve the interlocal agreements in April at its next meeting.

If approved, the county will collect $115,000 from Elkhart, $64,644 from Goshen, $5,400 from Middlebury, $5,000 from Wakarusa and $4,000 from Bristol. The sum of $194,044 would be given to the Humane Society.

The city of Nappanee and town of Millersburg do not contribute to the shelter.
