To the editor:
This letter is to the people who walk their dog(s) on the Kansas River levee in North Lawrence.
The levee is a City of Lawrence park, and the same rules apply as any other city park that is not a designated dog park. Dogs must be leashed, and the owners are responsible for picking up their dogs’ waste. Please don’t think that picking up the waste in a plastic bag and then leaving the bag on the levee fulfills your responsibility to comply with the ordinance. I’m not sure who you think will pick up the bag and dispose of it.
I would also like to extend the thanks of our neighborhood and its residents to those who do follow the rules. We appreciate it very much.
