DCC considers dog park issues

Dunedin City Council staff have been investigating issues at the East Taieri dog park to see what can be done after users asked the council to tackle weed, drainage and lighting issues there.

The Friends of East Taieri Dog Park group made the request to the council in a submission on its draft annual plan for 2014-15.

Regulatory services manager Kevin Thompson reported back to councillors on Friday that, following the submission, staff had priced fencing for around the watercourse and lighting.

His team was also working with the parks and recreation team to look at more regular maintenance. Staff planned to do the work within existing budgets, he said.

Cr Kate Wilson, a Taieri-Mosgiel ward councillor, said she had also suggested the group bring their concerns to the Mosgiel-Taieri Community Board, which could help them look at ways in which they could raise some community funding for the work they wanted done.
