(Beaver Dam) Beaver Dam Mayor Becky Glewen says recent changes in city ordinance will make the city more attractive for pet lovers. Following action by the Beaver Dam Common Council earlier this month, dogs can now be walked through any city park.
Glewen says a local citizen brought this idea forward and that she was surprised the sweeping changes were unanimously approved by the council. During a recent appearance on WBEV’s Community Comment, Glewen said Beaver Dam looked to municipalities in Madison and Fond du Lac when adopting changes to their own ordinance.
Dogs must be on a leash and are not allowed in shelters, playgrounds or athletic fields and have to keep moving, meaning you can’t stop in the park with your dog and have a picnic. Canines must also be wearing a rabies vaccination tag and their owners must clean-up their droppings. The only park in the city where a dog can run off-leash is the Patrick Parker Conley Park which is fenced-in.
