Voters to decide whether dogs can use beach
Whether dogs should get a couple of hours access a day to Willard Beach in Maine will be decided by voters.
South Portland city councilors voted unanimously Monday night to put the issue of dogs on the Nov. 3 ballot as a referendum question, TV station WMTW reports.
The issue has been debated for close to 20 years, and recent changes, after a push by dog owners, opened the beach up to dogs from 7 to 9 a.m. and 7 to 9 p.m.
After that, those opposed to dogs on the beach in the summer gathered more than 1,000 signatures, enough to present the issue to city council.
