Resolution and Agreement - Labor Relations Attorney - Gruccio Pepper

This is a friendly reminder to please pick up after your pet – they can’t do it themselves and we’ve heard from concerned residents that a nudge may be needed. In addition to being unsightly (and smelly!) animal waste can create health hazards for other pets and for the children in our community. So when you are walking with Fifi or Fido – on a leash, of course - please bring a baggie with you to immediately clean up after your pet and then dispose of the waste properly. Picking up #2 makes you #1!

** Failure to do so is a violation of local ordinance.
