Kville Council Gives Green Light For Dog Fence Screening Report

Administration in Kingsville will look to see how much it will cost to screen the fence at the town's dog park.

This comes after council approved a notice of motion by councillor Thomas Neufeld.

As heard on AM800 news earlier this week, Neufeld was looking for town staff to prepare a report outlining the costs to screen the area after hearing from residents who said the dog park looks to "industrial."

Neufeld says he's pleased with council's decision.

"We asked for a report from administration to look at the costing for screening for the fence around the dog park and they will give suggestions on what that will look like, what it will cost."

But there's more to it than that according to Neufeld.

"There is a safety factor involved with complete screening," he says. "If you can't see in, there's always the potential for a dog attacking another dog.  There's the safety aspect there that also needs to be considered and we will look at that when the report comes back."     

Neufeld says the report is expected to come back to council within the next 30 days.

The town opened its first dog park last November at Linden Beach.

The dog park is located at the corner of Malo and Conservation Blvd and is open daily from dawn to dusk.
