Dog park seeks big cash
Officials with the city of New Richmond are trying to rally dog owners from around the region.
Thanks to the PetSafe organization, communities from across the nation are vying for $25,000 to help develop a new dog park.
New Richmond is well on its way toward the development of a dog park on the northwest edge of the city, on an old landfill site.
People can vote on the PetSafe website daily. Votes can also be cast through Facebook. The 15 projects with the most votes from May 1 through May 31 will be declared finalists. Final voting will run June 5 through July 26.
The contest winner will be announced July 31.
