Yes! I Might Pay $50 a Year Towards a Dog Zone! (if happens in the future - no commitment now)

This petition had 60 supporters

It's still early stages but we are considering asking if dog owners would be prepared to make an entirely voluntary contribution of $50 a year per dog to the establishment and upkeep of a dog zone in the Town. No commitment now - this is at suggestion stage only.

We’ve been exploring various options for a fenced in open to off leash dogs at certain (limited) times of the day. We'd be hoping the town would help administer such a scheme were one to happen.

It's voluntary to avoid all the policing issues that occur with a compulsory scheme – and follows the lead of towns that have started successful initiatives to pay for things like 4th of July fireworks.

Tell us what you think of such an idea….
