Saluda asks residents to clean up after dogs on sidewalks

Published 5:48 pm Thursday, August 14, 2008

The discussion began after the city received an action request by a citizen who said something needs to be done about dog feces left on city sidewalks.

A broader discussion on the issue will likely take place during the city&squo;s next retreat, which usually occurs after the first of the year. The city could enact an ordinance, but the question of enforcement was said to be a potential problem for Saluda.

Commissioners said they will start with signs asking people to clean up after their own dogs with hopes that the problem will lessen.
