Jackson Co. Leash Law

In Florida, Jackson County commissioners are looking at implementing a leash law in the county's public parks.

However they want to hear from pet owners first.

A public hearing is scheduled for the July 11 Jackson County commission meeting, which will be held at 9:15 am.

Pet owners are urged to attend.

Officials say the proposed ordinance would apply only in county-maintained parks. For more information, you can call the Jackson County commission office at 482-9633.
