City Panel Agrees to New Dog Restrictions
Dog plans for city parks get an okay from La Crosse public works board. The board has agreed today to a plan from the city's parks department to further restrict some areas for dogs in the city, including the privately operated Fields for Kids near the city's industrial park. Under the new proposal, no dogs would be allowed there or in the city-owned Forest Hills golf course. The proposal also permits dogs to be walked on a leash in Riverside Park. A practice that is banned under current city rules.
