People may need a fine to pick up after their pets

Posted: Thursday, March 20, 2014 12:00 am

I just finished rollerblading on the seawall, and I am really disgusted by the behavior of a very few dog owners who live on the island. I have witnessed too many dog owners let their dogs use the beach as a bathroom and just kick sand over it. Really? Do you think this just goes away?

I was fortunate enough to flag down a policeman, and he educated me about the fact that there is no ordinance to ticket these dog owners. I hope each of our neighborhoods takes this to our council members so we can collectively correct this situation. Other cities with beaches have anywhere from a $50 to $500 fine for this disgusting practice.
