Pet Waste

Residents, please be a good neighbor and remove pet waste while walking your animal throughout the community. Chapter 6.04, Section 6.04.40, of the Municipal Code, entitled Animal Waste, states in part: "It is unlawful for any person to cause or permit a dog or cat to be on any property (public or private) including but not limited to any street, sidewalk, parkway, or common ground areas of condominiums and townhome subdivisions or upon the floor or hall of any multiple-dwelling unit which is used in common by the tenants thereof; or upon the fences, lawns, Pooper Scoopergrounds, driveways or parkways of any premises, or the walls or stairways of any building abutting on a public way unless such person has in his immediate possession a device for the immediate removal of excrement to a receptacle location upon the property owned or possessed by such person. It is unlawful for any person in control of any dog or cat to cause or permit any such dog or cat to be on any property, public or private, not owned or possessed by any such person to fail to immediately remove excrement left by such dog or cat to a proper receptacle located on the property owned or possessed by such person." Penalties imposed for violations of this section of the code may result in a fine of up to five hundred dollars ($500) for each violation.
