Dogs in the Parks
While I served on the City Council, there was a time when dogs were allowed in the parks. People (I believe mainly non-residents) did not take care of cleaning up after their dogs and so the policy was changed. I don't think we've heard the last of this issue. An article in the Salt Lake Tribune, discusses some of the issues that Taylorsville is having with a dog park. I would encourage any City Council that may be considering dogs in parks to seriously study the issues that Taylorsville is having. This way the issues can be taken care of up-front instead of after-the-fact. A wise rancher once told me it's a lot easier to catch a horse before he gets out of the barn.
