  • Dogs Off-Leash On the Beach - The Council approved the first reading of an ordinance which would allow registered dogs on beaches within the Town within specified hours to be off-leash and under their owner's control. The hours being recommended are sunrise until 9 am and 5 pm until sunset. The second reading of the ordinance, which is the soonest the law would go into effect, is scheduled for June 27th. Part of the procedure is a licensing process for this activity to be regulated by the Public Safety Department.
