Please let me start with a “Thank you” to our town officials and the Parks Recreation and Public Works Personnel for the upkeep of our town parks, that we are so proud of!
Since I reside in the Meadowbrook Co-op, we consider Town Center Park as our backyard! Over the last few months, we have been walking our puppy around and through the park. Unfortunately with the lack of cleaning up after their dogs, the park now is showing the effect of dog owners, not doing their part! Many individuals are either unaware or just don’t care and the park has become a mind field of hazards, which will also be more of a concern after the winter season!
Would it be possible to send out a press release or place signage at the park to help reinforce the town ordinance, relating to this growing problem. A posting and Clean-up Station(s) with bags, (similar to Brooksvale) would be most appreciated!
1. It shall be unlawful for any person to allow or permit any dog to defecate upon any sidewalk, public street, median divider within public streets, grass or paved strips between streets and sidewalks, public parks and other public property, unless such person shall remove all feces so deposited by such animal immediately before leaving the area of the defecation.
Again, thank you to our town officials and personnel for the fine job of maintaining our local parks. I would be more than happy to share any other needed information to minimize the lack of consideration and help with having better compliance, relating to this issue.
R. Freeman
