This blog post is in response to a post from the Perry Paw Dog Park committee requesting county funding for development.
I do not understand the funding issue for the Perry Paw Dog Park. When I first heard about it, I was excited to get a place close by for my puppy. I was surprised that it was up to the community to raise funds for it, but at the time I was unaware that other communities received county funds. Why does Perry Hall have to raise so much money for our dog park while the county has funded other communities' parks? Obviously dog parks aren't the most important item in strained budgets, but how can the county ignore us? I pay a lot in taxes for the privilege of living in this community and I don't think it's unreasonable to expect the county to provide the same amenities to Perry Hall as other communities in the county!
