Shreveport Dog Park Alliance responds to the Mayor's comments regarding the ruling of the dog park, saying they look forward to working with the Mayor and that the judge's ruling has no effect on the mayor's powers.

The Alliance says they have made suggestions to lower costs of operating what they call an under-utilized park.  They say it is because of the Mayor's parameters that the costs are so high for the dog park.

In a statement, the Alliance says the Mayor has the option to stop spending city money at any time.  They also add that this case will not set any precedence on future court proceedings involving the Mayor's office.
