“I agree with the reader who disagrees with the proposal to ban dogs from city parks. Pet owners are tax payers and deserve the right to use the parks. Alderman Peter Noppenberg supports the ban. Ironically, Noppenberg does not have a dog for a pet. 

“The animal control officer, Mary Cherry, doesn’t have to chase dogs and wait for them to poop. All she has to do is check to see if they are licensed. I am sure that if the owner is responsible enough to license their dog they are responsible enough to clean up after them.

“Let’s not over think this issue. Thank you.”
