CEDAR LAKE | A new dentist in town wants her dogs to join her at work occasionally and needs permission to build a fence to keep them on the property.
Christine Gudas, who plans to open an office at 13361 Lincoln Plaza Way in Cedar Lake, is seeking a variance that will allow her to build a 6-foot fence on the south side of her property.
She's seeking the variance from the Board of Zoning Appeals because town ordinance restricts her to a 3- to 4-foot fence.
Gudas is looking at office space in a 55-by-58-foot building, with parking on the north and east side. The fence she will install will be decorative, she said.
