Bogota park dog ban could be lifted

BOGOTA - Public parks in Bogota could soon go to the dogs.

The borough is considering lifting a decades-old ban on dogs in public parks.

The current ban has been in place for more than 50 years and applies to each of the borough's three parks.

Under the newly proposed ordinance, people would be allowed to bring up to three dogs at a time into a public park. The handler would have to be at least 18 years old and would be required to clean up after their pets.

The dogs would have to be on a leash no more than 10 feet long.

Borough leaders will vote on the proposed pet ordinance on Oct. 18.
