At the NPA BBQ this year, we honored appointees to city boards and commissions and invited them to speak about their board to inspire others to apply. A complete list is at the city web site, and residents interested in applying for a position can call their councilor for assistance or contact the City Clerk's office.
Special recognition was given to the long-time volunteers who keep Starr Farm Dog Park from going to the dogs! As Sandy reminds us, it is a park that PEOPLE BRING THEIR DOGS TO, not a Dog Park! The distinction remind us that this park requires the same good management and regular maintenance as any other park in the city. North End NPA has a resolution before the Finance Board currently, requesting that dog license fee$ be dedicated to dog park maintenance.
Chuck went to the dog park with his dog
every morning, talked to people and
recruited people to help. Everyone likes
and respects him.
