Dogs may be banned from North Tonawanda farmers' market

The North Tonawanda Common Council may vote Tuesday to ban dogs from the farmers' market, held every Saturday on Robinson Street.

Last year some customers' dogs were disorderly, said City Attorney Luke A. Brown said.

"There's been a few incidents where people brought dogs, and we asked them to leave and they wouldn't comply," Brown said Friday.

Brown said there were no reports of the dogs damaging property or injuring anyone. The market is popular and can be highly congested.

On another canine topic, Brown said he's not recommending a limit on the number of dogs residents can own, a topic discussed at a previous Council meeting.

"I don't think there's any empirical data or rational basis for limiting the number of dogs," he said.
