Pet Tourism for Green Lake:
Pet Industry is a $58 billion dollar industry. 56% of pet owners choose a destination with their pet in mind. Allowing pets around town encourages pet-based businesses to open in Green Lake, it’s an added benefit to living here, encourages people to spend time downtown, and the average pet owner spends between $700 - $3000 on their pets each year.

What we are asking the city to consider:
• Lift the ordinance prohibiting pets in our parks (Deacon Mills and Playground park)
• Impose a $250 fee for unleashed dogs
• Impose a $250 fee for not picking up after your dogs
• Find a few businesses or organizations to sponsor dog waste stations for the parks

Additional things to think about:
• Low risk – why not try it for a year?
• We would be one of the first Wisconsin cities to become pet friendly – being a leader of the pack (and not just a fast follower)
• Wisconsin has strict dog-bite statues to protect the city and place all liability on the owner: http://dogbitelaw.com/statutory-strict-liability-state/wisconsin-dog-bite-law.html
