The City has purchased additional "No Dogs Allowed" signs and these have been posted at parks and playgrounds where dogs are not allowed.

City Update 2/19/09: The dog-control officer and Jim McNally issued warnings in area and will start ticketing.

City Update 5/15/08: A part-time dog officer is planned for FY09 to address off-leash violations outside of the regular workday. Also, call the police via the 311 line anytime you see a dog off-leash.
