Concord bans dogs from the city cemeteries

It seems that some dog owners have been using the cemeteries in Concord as de facto dog parks. From the Concord Monitor:

The city council voted last night to enact an ordinance that bans dogs – service dogs excluded – from Concord’s 13 public cemeteries. Anyone who violates the ordinance could be fined between $50 and $1,000.

But while the ordinance bans virtually all dogs from the cemeteries, leashed or otherwise, councilors who supported the measure described its focus as more targeted.

“We don’t want dogs pooping in our cemeteries is really what this boils down to,” said Councilor Keith Nyhan.
