Scottville to become more dog friendly.

By Rob Alway, Editor-in-Chief.

SCOTTVILLE — Scottville is going to become a little more dog friendly, thanks to the generosity of a local resident and the Mason County Mutts organization. Sara Lutz, representing the organization, made a presentation to the City Commission during its regular meeting Monday. She said the organization received a $1,000 gift to pay for dog waste stations and water bowls in local communities. Lutz said the group has been working with the City of Ludington but also wanted to reach out to Scottville.

Commissioners agreed that placing the bowls and waste stations downtown, and some waste stations in the parks and residential areas was a good idea.

“I personally think this would be an asset to the city as we have many people who walk their dogs and I would hope that this may encourage those who don’t necessarily pick up after their pets to do so,” City Manager Amy Williams said.

The group was given the OK to work with Williams on placement of the items. It was also suggested that businesses and individuals may be willing to sponsor to help offset more costs.
