(IRON MOUNTAIN, MI)–It’s been at least two years now the Friends of the Park has been pushing for a dog park in Iron Mountain’s City Park. They have been looking at the open area south of the main pavilion. A majority of the city council approved the idea at a special meeting on Wednesday night. The only negative vote came from council member Amanda List, with council member Pam Maule absent . Funding for the project will come from Friends of City Park, which will include two enclosures one for large dog breeds and the second for smaller breeds. The vote was 5-1 with Maule being absent. List felt the area is too close to the playground. Dog owners must always be in control of their dog or dogs, under the city’s dog control ordinance governing dog control and clean up as well. The project will be funded by Friends of City Park. The plan calls for fenced in areas, one 50-feet by 50-feet for smaller dogs and the other 130 by 100 feet with individual gates leading to the enclosure.
