To The Daily Sun,
With the weather finally starting to turn warmer I decided on Sunday to take my dogs on a much needed long walk. For a change of pace I decided to walk the Union Avenue section between Laconia High School and Lakeport Square. Aside from the expected puddles and mud I was absolutely appalled to see nothing but dog excrement on the sidewalk in front of about four apartment buildings before coming to the light at the square.
Not only is it disgusting, unnecessary and unsanitary, but there is also a city ordinance against it. If you are going to own a dog then you need to clean up after it.
Responsible dog owners have already lost the use of the fenced area at Woodland Heights School due to the few irresponsible and careless dog owners not cleaning up. Unfortunately, now Public Works has to clean up the sidewalk while the offenders watch. In my opinion, they should look into who owns dogs there, and fine the landlords. Maybe the dog owners will learn once the fee is passed onto them or they are evicted.
Grossed out in Laconia,
