SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover listened to residents' concerns at a town hall meeting Wednesday at Fertitta's Delicatessen on Fairfield Avenue.

The topics up for discussion included the placement of the city's first dog park, economic development and infrastructure projects.

KSLA News 12 was there to hear residents' concerns.

First, both sides say they want a dog park, but the issue comes down to location. The Dog Park Alliance and much of the City Council have favored the Hamel Memorial Park location, which prompted the Red River Waterway Commission to fund the project with hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Glover says he prefers the Princess Park location, which is closer to downtown.

City leaders also want input on the city's aging water and sewer infrastructure after the U.S. Department of Justice mandated major improvements.

Finally, some water rate hikes could be coming to offset the millions of dollars needed to update the system.
