SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Proponents of building a Shreveport dog park saw more frustration on Tuesday as Mayor Cedric Glover tells city council members he's still not on board.

Glover told the council that a dog park was not a high priority compared to other projects.

His comments come on the heels of an announcement by the Shreveport Dog Park Alliance that the organization plans to sue Glover if he doesn't give his signature to green light the project.

The current plan puts the first facility of its kind in Hamel Park along the Red River.

Alliance members say they've already been promised the necessary funding.

"The city suggested we go to the parish to find money, and the parish came through with money from the Red River Waterway Commission, and through all of that we're ready to start a dog park," said Cynthia Keith, with the alliance.

Months ago Glover had vetoed a dog park proposal. The city council countered by overturning his veto.

City Council Member Michael Corbin had asked Glover to give the council an update on the status of the project during the city council's regular meeting on Tuesday.

"My position has not changed," Glover said to council members.
