HOW MANY WANT DOG PARK?
The question of how many people in Bethel want the dog park still goes unanswered. In last week's Bethel Citizen, Ms. Aloisio's article not only has dog licenses for Bethel, but includes five other towns. Is this a Bethel dog park or a six-town dog park and, if so, are these other towns going to share in its upkeep?
Also, the article states that the project came before the Planning Board last month. What I have been told is this project was brought before the town a long time ago.
I appreciate Mr. Wight's dog etiquette rules, but again the question is who cleans up, where do the feces go and who patrols the park? I have heard that the town will be responsible for the removal of the feces. Over and over I have been told there would be no expense to the taxpayer. Sounds to me, the Selectboard is putting the taxpayer on the hook.
In the event of the closing of the dog park, what then? I feel the Dog Park Committee should be required to post a “dismantling bond” for as long as the park is designated as a dog park.
