Enough is enough on dogs. The ban in areas of public assembly is supported by those who organize those events, including the Jefferson County Fair and the Chamber of Commerce Farmer's Market.
These events are not venues for attendees to become part of anyone's "training" of animals and I am tired of hearing about people's "right" to bring their animal.
It's a source of confusion to have "no dogs" signs and then have dogs intentionally being encouraged to interact with event participants.
The law passed earlier this year was a modest measure to remind people there is a time and a place for everything. If this were some kind of sweeping law to ban animals en masse from City property, I would have an issue with it. That is not what we have here.
I do concede any posts on this issue generate more comments than other topics.
