Self-interest is certainly not the driver for Amy Armstrong's push to ensure dog owners and their pets are not restricted in Port Fairy.
Ms Armstrong has started a petition circulating as part of feedback required by Moyne Shire for its question as to whether toy vehicles and dogs should be banned from the CBD during peak times.
The petition rejects the proposed changes, with Ms Armstrong - who is not a dog owner - leading the way.
Public feedback on the issue opened on Monday and closes on September 5.
Ms Armstrong's petition has already gathered (by Wednesday) 1320 names.
The petition also gives people the chance to leave a comment, with a sample of those gathered so far listed below:
"Council should instead ensure that Local Laws officers do continual patrols of the CBD over peak periods - a constant presence to deter the small minority that do the wrong thing - instead of penalising the entire community."
- Myra Murrihy
"It is a total over reaction to a problem that could be policed.
These changes will reduce the amenity of Pt Fairy rather than enhancing it."
- Hilary King
"I love PF and often stay there for prolonged periods adding to the local economy as do many travellers.
I am a grey nomad....I am accompanied by my greyhound Neville...will not come back if my boy is unwelcome."
- Suzi Edwards
"Totally unfair and unnecessary. Provide education not more rules and restrictions."
- Linda Malseed
