DARIEN, CT (WCBS 880) – There is a reprieve for residents of a Connecticut town who like letting their dogs run free.

LISTEN: WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reports

The leash law in Darien has been in the works for at least three years and while town officials were set to act, the vote was put off after most local lawmakers, like Jack Davis, agreed certain off-leash hours need to be set at one or two of the town parks.

“We cannot pass an ordinance without knowing first, that at least at one of these parks, we’re going to have some open space,” Davis told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau.

So, for now, no leash law in Darien – at least until March of 2011.
