for new approach to tackling dog fouling in Burnham-On-Sea
Burnham-On-Sea resident has proposed that Town Council staff should
be given powers to issue dog fouling fines to crackdown on the problem.
Milner Simonds told this month's Town Council meeting that more
needs to be done to address fouling along Burnham's pavements.
said: "The Town Council spends £24,000 a year dealing
with dog poo bins - a sizable chunk of its budget."
dog control order could be raised so that the Town Council's 14
employees would be able to issue fines."
are only two dog wardens in Sedgemoor at the moment, so we don't
see them very often."
more people able to issue fines would be a small step to address
the problem, take action promptly and collect fines to help meet
the £24,000 cost."
