Millet’s off leash dog park was approved with the town’s 2017 capital budget. Council passed the bylaw for the park during its May 10 meeting.

Councilors first saw the proposed bylaw last November, and first reading was passed December 2016.

Mayor Tony Wadsworth was concerned there would be wording in the bylaw he would not like, as he was not completely satisfied with the proposed draft.

Wadsworth was informed the bylaw before council during the May 10 meeting had not changed from the one given first reading.

“I think the spirit of the bylaw hasn’t changed and I’m happy with that,” said Wadsworth.

The park will be open 24 hours per day, with closures for exceptions at councils discretion.

Several points of the bylaw include who can handle a dog in the park, age limits and supervision for young handlers, dog clean up, as well as how dangerous dogs (classified under bylaw 2012/08) and dogs deemed nuisances by an enforcement officer can use the park.

Those who choose not to follow the off leash bylaw will be subject to monetary fines: $60 for the first offence, $100 for the second offence, and $150 for the third and subsequent offences.
