Jim Ciha, Landscape Specialist III, of the Milwaukee County Parks, 414-257-4884, will conduct these meetings. This will be your chance to give your opinion on what is happening in our park system. All interested people are invited to attend. We have found that dog friendly parks are an asset to our communities. People are given the chance to excercise their dogs and themselves, while also cleaning up any messes made while these activities go on. Many people in Milwaukee County own dogs, and would like to see more dog friendly and dog excercising parks available to the public. Don't be afraid to give your opinion on this matter. This is a public forum for informational purposes. Your opinion is very important in this matter.
