With action on a new dog park on hold at the county level, dog park supporters came to the Taylorville Park Board meeting Monday to plead their case.
Kathy Driskell is leading the charge for a dog park in Taylorville, and she says a dog park leads to more active and well-behaved dogs in the community.
Park Board President Marlene Miller says a dog park is something she looked into and worked on during her time as Recreation Director for the Park District.
Miller says more research would be done into how they would run the dog park and keep track of the dogs using the park. Driskell says there is a big desire in the community for a dog park, and the group had brought a sheet with over 200 signatures in support of bringing a dog park to the community.
