The Butterfly Lady

Per Ordinance 90-6 Regulating and Controlling Nuisances, animals which are left free

captured will have to pay a fine prior to their release.

The President and several trustees have received complaints from concerned citizens about dog and other animal waste being left in their yards and on public property.

Do NOT leave your animal’s waste on property that you are not responsible for.

Pick it up!

Carry your “pooper scooper” or a bag and take it home with you.  This is breaking the ordinance and you will be fined.  If you don’t mow it or scoop snow off of it

– do NOT leave your animal’s waste there.
