Good news on the Mutt Mitt front. I’ve just found out that our request has been approved and a work order was submitted this week for the return of our Mutt Mitt dispenser. In the next week or two, it will be installed at the NW entrance of Wallingford Playfield at 43rd and Woodlawn. For now, the Parks Department will regularly check the dispenser and re-stock as necessary. I’ve agreed to follow up with them in a few months to see how it’s all going.
Please still continue to bring your own plastic bags to pick up after Fido and Fidette. The Mutt Mitts are pricey little resources, especially in our current economic climate, and are intended for emergencies. Thanks to all community members who have participated in the ongoing (and sometimes very lively) discussions on maintaining our neighborhood gem of a park for all to enjoy.
P.S. Have you met any of the great Parks staff who help maintain Wallingford Playfield? I’ll be doing a spotlight interview in the near term so stay tuned!
