Updated Guidance for Dogs on County Property
The Board of Commissioners recently clarified county ordinance in regards to dogs on county property, including Yahoola Creek Park and the Reservoir Trail. The updated ordinance clarifies that dogs on county property must be on a non-retractable leash of no longer than 10 feet. This clarification is in addition to our Park & Rec policy that dogs be kept off playing fields. Also added was a statement that this ordinance works in conjunction with the county’s policy regarding allowing only ADA service animals inside county buildings. These updates are effective immediately.
