Coborn’s Super Store in Sartell is now offering customers an option to contribute to the planned dog park in Sartell’s Pinecone Central Park.
At the cash registers, through the end of August, customers will see brochures that ask them to donate one of two amounts ($1 or $5) for the park. The money is needed to build a chain-link fence around the park, which is the vital first step in developing the dog park, a place for dogs and their owners to romp and walk in security.
The city has pledged $10,000 to help with the park, but other than that, all funds for the facility must be raised privately. The fence, it is estimated, will cost $50,000 to $60,000 to purchase and install.
