An idea of a dog park has not been abandoned by the city of McMinnville.The city Parks and Recreation Committee has earmarked $20,000 in the proposed 2017-18 fiscal year budget of Parks and Recreation Department to establish one. “The dog park was taken out of the budget,” said Parks and Recreation Department director Scott McCord.City officials, with assistance from Friends of the Greenway members, attempted to obtain a $50,000 state tourism grant for the dog park. But the state is keeping a tight leash on its money and the grant was not awarded.
