DUBUQUE (KWWL) - The Dubuque Park and Recreation Commission is hosting a public input meeting Tuesday, Nov. 18 on an ordinance to allow dogs in the majority of parks in Dubuque.

The meeting will be held in the City Council Chambers on the second floor of the Historic Federal Building, 350 West Sixth Street.

As it stands right now, leashed dogs and cats are only allowed in a handful of parks in Dubuque.

This ordinance would allow them in virtually all parks in the city, mirroring what most other cities already have in place.

The Dubuque Park and Recreation Commission is only considering proposing the ordinance to City Council at this time.  They'll allow each person that wants to talk up to two minutes at this meeting. 

For a list of parks and trails where leashed pets are currently allowed, or to view the current proposed ordinance, visit www.cityofdubuque.org/parks or call 563-589-4263.

For further information on the commission's proposal to change the current ordinance, please call Park and Recreation Commission Chair Ken Klinge at 563-557-8872.
