Updated: Council OKs $25k for Klauer dog park

Jerry Ziegler walks his two dogs Sir Galahad and Sir Lancelot during the Saturday's annual Wag n Wag at Granite Rock. The fun run is a fundraiser for Pet Friends.

Hollister City Council members in a 3-1 vote Tuesday approved allocating $25,000 to establish dog-friendly facilities at Klauer Park.
The move will make the city property, on Beverly Drive in the Sunnyslope Village subdivision, an official dog park years after locals started informally using it for canines.
The item for the $25,000 was on the consent agenda for the 6:30 p.m. meeting at Hollister City Hall, 375 Fifth St., but was pulled for discussion. Incidentally, Councilman Karson Klauer, whose family name is honored at the park in question, was unable to attend the meeting.
With the money, the council agenda report says minor repairs are needed to the drainage basin at the park.
Hollister also maintains a dog park at the municipal airport.
Look back for more.
