Mayor Glover's Town Hall to Discuss City Issues

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La -

Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover hosted a town hall meeting at Fertitta's Delicatessen, which just happens to be near the site the mayor thinks would be a great place for a dog park. The town hall meeting aims to discuss issues facing the city of Shreveport. One of the issues the Mayor wants to dialogue with the city about is the dog park issue.

Mayor Glover has until Monday, July 22nd to file an appeal of Judge Leon Emmanuel's ruling ordering him to sign the agreement accepting $280,000 dollars from the Red River Waterway Commission to build the dog park on the Clyde Fant Parkway. But the Mayor thinks that Princess Park would be a better and less expensive location. He says building there would only cost about $96,000 dollars versus the $950,000 dollars Glover says it take to build a brand new facility at Hamel Park. That's an estimate that supporters of the dog park say is inflated. Dan Keele, attorney for the Shreveport Dog Park Association said Princess Park won't do. "We've dotted all of our I's and crossed all of our T's as far as Hamel's is concerned. The Princess Park idea was discussed before and was rejected. We're not opposed to the Princess Park being a second location for a dog park but it's not a replacement for the Hamel's."
