Bad money: Building a dog a dog park.
There are hundreds of areas of forest to walk or let dogs run, or walk the dogs around town and get to know your neighbors and their dogs.
Good money: Gazebo. That money could have gone to the Humane Society what with all the people abandoning or giving up their dogs.
Bottom line: How many dog owners use the park?
Percentage: Few. Most just let them run around their property.
Weather: How many months does the park get any real use?
A town of 15,000 should rethink its priorities on how to spend its money.
