Relief in sight

The city of Ellensburg is in the process of planning for pet relief stations in the downtown core. At last week’s city council meeting, City Manager Heidi Behrends Cerniwey reported that by the end of 2023 there will be 180 apartment/condo units in downtown Ellensburg, and many of those residents own dogs. To accommodate the call of nature, the city is repurposing an unadopted garden node and outfitting it with anti-microbial turf, drainage and mutt mitt dispenser and signage. A pet relief station also will be incorporated into the Unity Park design.
