Proposed Dog Park Fee

The Suffolk County Parks Department has been considering imposing a user fee for the dog parks within the County Park System.  This fee would be in addition to the Green Key fee already required to enter the park on the weekends.  We feel that the fee would be counter-productive, in that it would cost the County more to implement and enforce than it would receive.  Also, the fee would discourage people from using the dog park thus depriving their dogs of much needed social interaction and exercise.  Additionally, since any money collected would go into the County's general fund, and not to the Parks Department the condition of the dog parks would not benefit.

Please use the forum to express your thoughts on this.  You can also express your views directly to the Board of Directors of the Suffolk County Parks Department  at their monthly meeting which is scheduled for this Thursday, Jan 15, 2009, at 1:00 pm at the Meadow Edge Country Club, West Sayville Golf Course, Montauk Hwy, West Sayville (View Map).  You do not have to speak at the meeting, but your attendance would show support and your concern.  We hope to see many of the Blydenburgh Dog Park users there.  If you have any questions please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
