Any pets discovered unsupervised will be asked to leave, along with their owners, and any damage to town property will be the owners’ responsibility.
Smith said he hasn’t seen many pets stopping by town hall yet, but that doesn’t he won’t. Now, there is a policy in place that spells out the rules.
“But I don’t think, as a practice, we would have pets here regularly,” he said.
The policy was put in place mostly for the town’s senior citizens, Smith said, as he realizes they appreciate having their pets nearby.
“It’s a good morale practice, too,” he said. “They do love their little dogs.”
