Attached is the sign that was shared at city council last night that will be displayed in several locations in the city.   These signs will be put up once the weather is consistently warmer and in the following locations: Heinens, Bvpd, Bay Square Shopping Center, CVS, City Hall, BV parks (parking lots ) Some BV businesses have requested them for their front windows. Friends of the Bay Village Kennel purchased and will replenish this signage in our efforts to educate residents and visitors the dangers and consequences of leaving pets unattended in vehicles with windows up and in warm weather.
