Instead of funding a new disc golf course at a county park, county supervisors instead voted to shift that money to three dog parks; one of which hasn’t been built yet.
The county board voted 16-1 for the change, a story in The Journal Times reads, after Julie Anderson, the county’s director of public works and development services, told supervisors that finding a park where a disc golf course could be built has been problematic.
A total of $30,000 will be put to better use at the dog parks, which are wildly popular, Anderson told the newspaper. The money will pay for additions like shelters and benches.
“All three dog parks across the county are really busy, really successful,” she is quoted as saying.
Parks are currently located at Quarry Lake Park, 3800 Northwestern Avenue, in Mount Pleasant and at Case Eagle Park, 310 S. Rochester Street, in Rochester. A third dog park is planned for Legion Park in Union Grove, the story continues.
