Note From the Board of Health
Kindly remember that there is a leash law, and a law that mandates that animal feces must be picked up and properly disposed of. Do not leave your dog out without being tethered. If you are walking your dog, keep him on a leash and please pick up the feces in a plastic bag and take it home with you, or discard it in a rubbish receptacle if there is one available during your walk. Please be considerate and do not throw the bag on the ground in an empty lot or anywhere else. Thank you.
