Q. Are dog owners required by City ordinance to pick up their dog's feces if it is on public property and/or someone else's property?
A. City ordinance 4.01.005. Public Nuisance Animals states, “It is an offense for any person to allow the person’s animal to defecate on public property or on the property of another and fail to immediately remove such waste.” The City animal care officer must witness a violation or have proof that the violation occurred in order to take action. There is also the option of filing a complaint directly with municipal court for violations you witness. Further questions, can be directed to our animal care officer, Wes Fiddes, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 469-444-0915
