System Works Well

Jul 12, 2017

To the Editor:

Regarding the June 21 article about the Barnegat Light dog park, I applaud the Barnegat Light Borough Council and mayor for their thoughtful approach to the design of the card key, with fee requirement for non-residents of Barnegat Light.

In prior years, the park was not always safe. I have seen both people and dogs bitten by other dogs, some vicious, some scared. There were often disagreements between people as owners tried to protect their dogs or get people to clean up after their dogs.

Now there is order. The Barnegat Light staff was easy to work with. They were pleasant and helpful while I applied for the dog tag and swipe card required. Although there was a technical glitch early on, the system works well now.

I am happy to pay $30 per year for the privilege of using the park, and I am thankful that the mayor, council, and staff of Barnegat Light had the foresight to protect people and dogs alike.
