Dogs in park questionnaire

The City of Vernon wants to know how residents feel about on leash dogs in Polson Park.

On Monday, council okayed a two year trial in the park, starting this fall.

In order to keep the park clean, dog bag dispensers and signage will be installed and a drinking fountain for dogs will be installed next spring.

"Vernon residents will have an opportunity to provide their comments about the trial through a questionnaire that will be launched during the trial period. The start of the trial will be announced this fall," said a press release issued Tuesday.

Council  has okayed the expenditure of $28,150 for the dog related changes and another $32,000 for improvements to the pathway and boardwalk.

The move is an effort to encourage more people to use the park following a bylaw to ensure homeless people cannot camp there beyond 9 a.m. each day.
