Hearing at City Hall was a big success! The $1,000 fine for dogs of leash enforced earlier this spring has been lowered to $200 for first time offenders, $400 (second), $600 (third). Thanks to everybody that made it out to Fed Hill for the hearing and for those of you who signed the petitions :)
Dude. Baltimoreans are way too disgruntled about the dumbest things. Enough people complained about dogs off leash so then out of nowhere, $1,000 fines! Nobody, even dog owners, want dogs running rampant around a public park, so let's do what every other city does that has a strong dog presence and build more dog parks...this time one that people and their dogs will actually go too. I'm not a huge fan of the Canton Dog Park, but beggars can't be choosers right?
