The Town of Evans is interested in creating a dog run on property behind Town Hall on Erie Road.
The Town Board created a committee earlier this month to look into the proposal for a park where dog owners can bring their canines to run around without a leash.
It would be similar to Rootie’s Run, the dog park the Town of Hamburg has on Lakeview Road.
The cost for the fencing, however, would likely be several thousand dollars, and the town would look for donations to foot the bill, officials said.
The committee, meanwhile, will help come up with suggestions on how to fund and operate the park.
The 12-member committee includes: Megan Scritchfield, Kristine DeMartino, Gail Dannebrock, Richard Gajewski, Victoria and William Kurek, Kay Curtin, Michael Franey, Emily Warren, Susan Schmitt, Patricia Nagel and Ashley Zielinski.
Also this week:
• The Lake Shore Central School Board will meet at 7 p.m. on Tuesday in the media center of the high school, 959 Beach Road.
