Informational warning signs needed at dog beach

At the time of this writing, it appears that there is no indication that the Peach Orchard Dog Beach will be fully fenced.

Dear Editor:

At the time of this writing, it appears that there is no indication that the Peach Orchard Dog Beach will be fully fenced to provide safe, secure enjoyment for dogs and dog owners alike.

If the addition of a small portion of chain link fencing to the south end of the area is too much, may I suggest informational warning signs be posted in the area.

Wording might be something like this: This is an unsecured and not fully fenced area. If your dog leaves this area off leash it will be considered unlawfully at large, may be seized and subject to Summerland’s Dog Control Bylaw #96-002. Penalties include fines up to $2,000 per day. After 72 hours the dog may be destroyed.
