The Iowa City City Council will consider a resolution April 3 to approve the most recent plans for the Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center.

The center was significantly damaged by the 2008 flood.

Federal Emergency Management Agency funds for the center total $1.4 million and, city officials say, most of those funds will be used for construction costs. The estimated cost for construction of the facility is $3 million.

Recently, Coralville, University Heights, and the University of Iowa have agreed to help fund the proposed facility.

The councilors will vote on the resolution at their next meeting, April 3.
