TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County is a step closer to getting an overhauled animal shelter.

On Friday, a citizens' bond oversight committee voted unanimously to ask county supervisors to consider putting the issue to voters in a future election.

Shelter workers want to see it go on the ballot before the end of the year because of overcrowding and other problems at the facility, which cares for about 24,000 animals each year. The shelter is using temporary tent city to help ease the problem.

Plans for the $22 million shelter makeover would cost the average homeowner about $4 a year.
