Oct. 1 Public Safety Advisory Committee Meeting Announcement

Public Safety Advisory Committee Meeting

Monday, October 1, Girdwood Community Center, 7 p.m.

Dog safety is on the agenda

Have you or your dogs been attacked by a dog in Girdwood?

After Glacier City Gazette’s mascot Ozzy was attacked by two larger dogs on the bike path, conversations with community members revealed an under reported problem with aggressive dogs in Girdwood. For dogs and humans, dogs that attack are a public safety issue, a community issue, and a quality of life issue.

I requested PSAC put the item on its agenda to give the community a chance to discuss if there are dog problems in Girdwood. If so, what are some constructive ideas to create long-term awareness of this issue?

If Girdwood wants to proclaim itself as a dog friendly town, then every dog from the tiniest teacup to the most massive mastiff should be free to be walked around Girdwood without being assaulted or harassed.
