VINCENT city council has spent $1000 to move a dog bowl 30 metres, following complaints.
The concrete drinking bowl on Charles Veryard Reserve in North Perth was a stone’s throw from the main dog exercise area, but that didn’t stop locals lobbying for it to be moved even closer.
Caroline Powell-Pepper, who walks Chippy around the reserve every day, says it’s a waste of money.
“It’s an absolute joke,” she says. “The original was below a water fountain in a perfectly good position.
“It’s just an unnecessary waste of ratepayers’ money and completely pointless.”
The work, which involved digging up a path and repiping, is expected to be finished next week.
