What can we do to ensure pet owners pick up droppings from their pets?
If you see a homeowner failing pick up after their dog make a note of the homeowner's address. Contact the management company, listed on our homepage, with the name or address of the homeowner and a violation letter will be sent and tracked for repeat offenders.
