We realize and encourage our community members to go outside and take a walk as long as you are practicing social distancing. We also realize that you want to take your pets for a walk.  Even though the Town does not have a leash law,  the dog needs to be under the control of the owner.  During this difficult time, we encourage you to keep your dogs on a lease since many people are out walking with their dogs.  In the event that there was an incident, the Town does not have the man power currently to deal with this. Please do your part and help out in our community. The little things really matter during this difficult time. I hope you and your families are safe and healthy. If you need me for anything please feel free to contact me.
