And for Forks Township officials, all of the barking over allowing dogs in community parks that ended in a decision reversal after an approval seems to be changing again like the leaves this fall.
The issue is back on the table, Supervisors Chairman Erik Chuss said.
Last month, supervisors voted to reverse an earlier ordinance
that allowed dogs into the township park system.
In June, supervisors voted 3-2 to allow dogs in Community Park and other parks and on township bike paths. One of the three votes in favor of the ordinance came from supervisor David Billings, who has since resigned.
But with Edwin Moore now replacing Billings, Chuss believed it was time to try again. He has supported the issue from the start.
Supervisor John O'Neil believes the issue should be reapproved.
He had stated that Forks Township spent $3,500 on doggy stations and bags to be placed throughout township parks. And, he has said, not going forward would be a waste of taxpayer dollars.
