Members and supporters of Friends of the Hays Dog Park will appear before the Hays City Commission next Thursday, October 17, asking permission to begin construction

“We have the money, and then some, for Phase 1 of the park, as well as construction bids,” says FHDP president Kim Perez.

The figures will be presented during a work session with commissioners expected to vote October 24 on whether to allow construction to begin.

More money will be coming in from a Friday fundraiser.  Students of the Fort Hays State University Tourism and Hospitality Management program have organized a dog-friendly event at the Oct. 11 FHSU soccer games.

The “Off the Leash” group will be selling bandanas with raffle tickets at the games.  Prizes will also be awarded, including a soccer ball signed by either the men or women’s team.
