Har­ris de­clares war on dog pooh on pave­ments

Bray People - - NEWS -

CLLR. SI­MON HAR­RIS is on a mis­sion to rid Grey­stones of dog pooh.

‘Whilst it may not be the most glam­orous to raise, the prob­lem with dog lit­ter is a quite an is­sue in our town. There needs to be a much bet­ter strat­egy for tackling the prob­lem and in my view this con­sists of the need for more en­force­ment of the law in re­la­tion to this mat­ter, a look at the re­sources avail­able and the pro­vi­sion of more dog-lit­ter bins in the area.

‘It is un­ac­cept­able that peo­ple who park their car without a ticket will find them­selves with a fine but peo­ple who al­low their dog do its busi­ness on our beaches, green ar­eas and walk­ways seem to be get away with it.’

Cllr. Har­ris has put down a no­tice of mo­tion for Grey­stones Town Coun­cil on the mat­ter and said ‘I hope that my mo­tion can lead to a dis­cus­sion on en­force- ment of the law, keep­ing our open spa­ces safe and clean for our chil­dren and for all peo­ple en­joy­ing ameni­ties and en­sur­ing that enough dog-lit­ter bins and the like are in place. This is­sue must be ad­dressed and I in­tend to con­tinue to pur­sue it at Town Coun­cil and County Coun­cil level.’
