The council had asked staff to look at putting the winter only canine facility at the southwest corner of the rodeo grounds. What the staff came back with an alternative that will locate the pooch park at the Mateosky baseball field on the other end of the grounds. One neighbor complained that it was not the right place for the activity and Councilor Don Frank agreed.
PAWS spokesperson Amy Romaine thanked the council but noted they really need a minimum of one acre for the dog park.
The vote was 3-1.
