As of Monday, dogs are allowed to return with their owners to Compo Beach.

Under a town Parks and Recreation Department policy, dogs can be brought to the beach from Oct. 1 to March 31 as long as they are accompanied by handlers who abide by the following rules:

The animals must be on a leash in all areas of the park, except in the designated off-leash section of the beach south of pavilion, including South Beach. Off-leash regulations are posted at entrance to the designated area.

Dogs are prohibited from the pavilion, playground and boardwalk.

Owners must clean up waste left by their dogs.

Violation of the rules carries a fine of $77.
