SAN ANGELO, Texas — UPDATE: The small dog park off Millbrook has reopened to the public, according to a social media post from the City of San Angelo Friday afternoon.
The replacements for the stolen gates are still being shipped. The City said it will have to briefly close the small dog park for a couple of hours to install the gates once they are received.
The City reminds citizens to contact the police non-emergency number at 325-657-4315 if they see something odd, such as non-City workers taking down a fence or gates.
ORIGINAL STORY: San Angelo's small dog park will remain closed after someone stole its double gate over the weekend.
According to the City of San Angelo's Facebook post, it will have to reorder more fencing materials, which will add another couple of weeks to the reopening date, depending on shipping time.
The park was built with donations from the public, some half-cent sales tax funds from the City of San Angelo Development Corp., and construction by Raymond Meza Fence Co. and Parks employees. It is maintained by the City.
This is the second incident of fence theft at the dog park this summer.
If citizens see something odd, such as non-City workers taking down a fence or gates, contact the San Angelo Police Department's non-emergency number at 325-657-4315.
