A Brigantine football coach is not thrilled with plan to re-locate dog park next to his practice field. No official relocation yet, even though space next to the Brigantine Community Center looked like a sure thing based on a vote at the recent July 17 council meeting.
Brigantine Football Coach; Mike ‘Mad Dog’ Morgan, looks to be main opposition to a proposed move to land right next to the Community Center. While Morgan understands the need for a new dog park, he’s not happy about possibly losing a portion of his football practice field of 19 years. Morgan’s chief concern seems to be potential for a dog / kid mishap. Opponent’s to Morgan’s concern have accused him of using scare tactics.
On the money side of things, local resident; Ron Weiss, is digging into his pocket once again with a $10,000 donation for the new park. Any additional expense will be sought through donations and grants.
