Question

Sound Off: Are dog owners required to have their dogs on a leash in Burcham Park? And are homeless people allowed to camp in that park?

Answer

Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this answer: Yes, in any public area, including parks, dogs must be on a leash. The exception for parks includes Lawrence’s designated dog parks: Mutt Run at Clinton Lake and Riverfront Park in North Lawrence. No camping is allowed in any city park without a pre-approved camping permit from Parks and Recreation. Parks hours are 6 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.

Why don't people just call the city instead of being passive-aggressive tattle tales to the newspaper?

I wouldn't worry about the dog. Ever notice how people feed the homeless mutts and when the dogs start to get some meat on them, a month or two later the dog is gone and said homeless dude has a new dog
