COCOA BEACH, Fla. -- Cocoa Beach city leaders approved a measure Thursday night that will allow dogs on a small section of the beach.

Starting July 15, people will be allowed to bring their pets on the beach from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

Two weeks ago, commissioners voted against allowing dogs at Lori Wilson Park.

However, a new amendment will let people bring dogs to beaches from 4th to 16th Street for a six-month trial period.
