PHOTOS: Dog Owners Hound Burien City Councilmembers Monday Night
Local dog owners, some belonging to a new group called ‘B-Town DOG,’
bitched at hounded Burien City Councilmembers at Monday night’s meeting (Oct. 1), requesting that the city create its first off-leash dog park.
As we first reported Aug. 23, the group wants a dog park at Hilltop Park, located at 2600 S. 128th Street. The nearest off-leash dog park is Grandview Park in SeaTac (3600 S. 228th Street).
Around 15 or so dogs showed up with their owners, in an effort to get the attention of local lawmakers.
And yes, there were plenty of growls, barks and yaps directed at the council, which promised to do a study of the dog park idea.
Councilmember Jack Block Jr. even brought his dog, which joined him at the dais.
BTB Publisher Scott Schaefer showed up too, and he snapped these pics (click images to see larger versions/view slideshow):
