Final approval for agreement to be signed

Another milestone reached!

Last Tuesday night, July 5th, the Beacon City council voted unanimously for Mayor Gold to sign the agreement with the Friends of Beacon Dog Park, Inc. The agreement outline the terms and the conditions upon which the dog park will operate. Among many things, it mandates that we carry liability insurance, that violent, dangerous, or otherwise anti-social dogs will be prohibited from using the park, and that the community of dog owners as a whole behave in a proper way while using the dog park (e.g. clean up after their own dogs, leash their dog when not within the park enclosures, treat the park kindly, etc).

No further votes are needed and we are now free to build and operate our dog park at the Memorial Park location under the terms of the agreement.

We thank the City Council of Beacon and Mayor for all their input and help with making this park a reality.
