From the Concord Monitor:

The city council voted last night to enact an ordinance that bans dogs – service dogs excluded – from Concord’s 13 public cemeteries. Anyone who violates the ordinance could be fined between $50 and $1,000.

But while the ordinance bans virtually all dogs from the cemeteries, leashed or otherwise, councilors who supported the measure described its focus as more targeted.

In an editorial, the Monitor puts it in a nutshell:

Once again, the lazy and selfish few have spoiled it for the law-abiding many. Earlier this week, the Concord City Council voted to ban dogs from city cemeteries.
