Voters at Monday’s annual Town Meeting decided not to pursue a bylaw that would have required dog owners to keep their pets on a leash when not on their property. Selectmen opposed the leash bylaw out of financial concerns, saying the town would have to hire a full-time animal control officer to enforce it. Proponents said the law was needed as a safety measure that would protect both residents and dogs.
