CARTHAGE — After considering a matter originally presented at its October meeting, the village Board of Trustees on Nov. 19 denied a request for exemption from the dog ban at public events.

Christina Crawford had asked the board for proof of exemption from the law that prohibits dogs from all public events including parades and the farmers market, for her dog, a certified therapy dog. After consulting with the village attorney, Mark G. Gebo, the board decided that unless the dog was acting as a therapy dog, it did not fall under the exemption clause.

“It’s different from a seeing-eye dog, which has to be available to go all the time,” village President G. Wayne McIlroy said. “It’s not working all the time.”
