Shreveport council members override mayor's veto of dog park
Shreveport, La — Infighting between Shreveport officials over a city dog park seems to have finally come to a close.
The Shreveport Dog Park Alliance has been pushing for the city's approval to fund the construction and maintenance of a new dog park.
On September 25, city council members voted unanimously to approve the measure, only for it to be shot down by Mayor Cedric Glover with a veto.
Shortly before 4 p.m., on Tuesday, council members overrode the Mayor's veto 7-0, giving the Red River Waterway District $280,000 to oversee the project.
Mayor Glover was not present at the meeting after falling and injuring himself at Oak Park Microsociety Elementary School last week, however, he did attend via teleconference.
