One of Friends of the Dog Parks' short-term goals is to provide both Rickman's Run and Oak Creek Dog Park with additional doggy poo bag dispensers to encourage everyone to clean up after their dogs. With an adequate number of dispensers spread throughout each park, cleanup is quick, easy, and convenient. FotDP's simple, cost-effective PVC design has already shown up at both dog parks, but additional dispensers are still needed.
Thanks to Cornhusker Winnelson Company, FotDP will achieve this goal in no time! The plumbing parts and supplies distributor has generously donated 60 feet of 3-inch PVC pipe -- that's material enough for 30 bag dispensers! All-in-all, the Lincoln-based company is saving FotDP about $150 in supply costs and enabling the dispenser project to happen in a matter of weeks rather than months.
Select board members will accept Winnelson's donation and begin building the new bag dispensers in the next week, with dispenser placement to happen shortly after.
Cornhusker Winnelson's donation is proof that, together, we can work to make Lincoln's dog parks cleaner, friendlier places to play.
Thank you, Cornhusker Winnelson!
