As you may know, mom went to the City Council meeting on Tuesday evening to tell the Mayor and City Council that
me and Stanley our city needed a Dog Park. Before we tell you the outcome, we have to explain that we did not have an official spot on the agenda. Instead, mom was speaking during the portion that allows public comments. So that meant that mom was limited to 5 minutes and there would not be a vote by the council (they only vote on official agenda items). BUTT, the Mayor already KNEW mom was coming to talk about a dog park. Mom emailed him and gave him a bunch of information days before the meeting. So the Mayor already shared everything with the council before mom even got there. So even before mom said anything they knew much of what she was going to say. (Since mom knew this already she said new stuffs.)
After mom made her comments and a few other people spoke about a few things, the Mayor polled the council to see if they were interested in investigating the dog park idea further. The WHOLE council said they were interested in it! Then the mayor said (get ready for this), that they ALREADY talked a little bit about it and decided there were several locations within the city that are ALREADY fenced in that could be turned into a dog park without too much problem! And then he said there was ALREADY grass planted so that would not be an issue either! Can you believe that?? That was the BEST possible thing we could have heard! So they are going to research into what it would take to get one of these locations made into a dog park and then when they have that research done the council will vote on it. And remember, EVERYONE on the council was interested in a dog park! So we are feeling VERY good about having a dog park in our future!
I think I better get my K-9 Kannon shined up and ready for the grand opening!
