More wardens to tackle dog fouling
SIR, – I read the article (Press and Journal, April 23) on “Irresponsible dog owners” not picking up their dog’s mess as they walk their dogs.
I happened to speak to one of the city wardens when I was in the town centre and was told they didn’t have enough staff to police parking, litter louts or dog fouling.
Sticking notices up on lampposts is a waste of time as those who don’t bother to pick up their dog’s mess just ignore them.
What we need is more city wardens patrolling the streets then maybe it might reduce the amount of mess from those irresponsible dog owners.
On the other hand maybe the councillors could patrol the ward areas they are responsible for, then they would see what the problems are at first hand.
The mess of dog fouling along the old rail line between Gray Street and Cults is absolutely terrible, and those responsible do not consider anyone else except themselves.
