Dog Park Could Become a Reality in Town of Cortlandville – Town Begins Discussion


The Cortlandville Town Board met last night at 5pm at the Raymond G. Thorpe Municipal Building for their first meeting in the month of September. During the meeting, Town of Cortland Supervisor Tom Williams spoke on a potential area for a future dog park, as well as the purchasing of an electric vehicle for the town.

Plans for the dog park in the Town of Cortlandville began back in early 2019, but were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Tom Williams says with the growing popularity, now is the time to start looking into the Town of Cortlandville creating one.

Williams mentioned that the town has a piece of land on Fairview Drive that would be suitable. The land was originally used for stormwater management. He asked board members for approval in forming a volunteer committee to start making plans for the park, the board unanimously agreed to do so.

There will also be the possibility of the Town of Cortlandville making its first electric vehicle purchase in the near future, as long as pricing works out for the town. Williams informed the board, the electric vehicle would be for town business and help the town money not just on no fuel costs, but removing the need for town business being used with private vehicles (which get reimbursed for mileage).

The vehicle would only be for transportation use only and no equipment would be stored in the vehicle. Currently, the Town of Cortlandville uses a pickup truck, the potential new vehicle would replace this.
