GRAND RAPIDS - A proposed idea for a village-run dog park fizzled out Monday at a council meeting.
"I don't think it's the village's responsibility," said council member Carolyn Erdody.
The dog park idea was discussed at council's previous meeting at the request of a citizen.
Village Administrator Chad Hoffman presented council members with some background on the idea Monday.
"It looks like there are dog parks out there on city, village and county property, but they are not run by the village," Hoffman said.
Instead, he said, most of the dog parks he researched were leased from the municipality, but operated and maintained by a private group or company.
"I think if someone wants to present a plan to the village, we will review it," council member Curt Williams said.
Also at Tuesday's council meeting, Erdody expressed concern over speeding in the village.
Specifically, she said, motorists are speeding on Sycamore Road, between River Road and Fourth Street.
A Wood County Sheriff's Deputy, who delivers a regular report to council, responded and said: "I will bring that to the attention of the sheriff's office."
