It may be fall, but dog days are back. At least at Compo Beach.
As of Oct. 1, dogs on a leash are allowed to return to the town’s shoreline park through March 31.
In addition to staying on a leash — except in the designated off-leash area of the beach south of pavilion — animals are prohibited from the pavilion, playground and boardwalk. Off-leash regulations are posted at entrance to the designated area.
Dog owners are required by law to pick up their animal’s feces.
Violators of the regulations are subject to a fine of $77.
