Northport Village Police Asks Patrons To Clean Up After Dogs

Northport Village police are asking those who bring their canine companion to the village to clean up after the dog.

“It has been a long-standing tradition for Village of Northport to make our parks dog friendly,” Northport Police Chief Bill Ricca said. “However, dog owners have the responsibility to pick up after their dogs have done their business.

Ricca said the village maintains doggie clean up bag stations in all the parks.

He added that there has been a “spike of complaints that dog owners are not cleaning up.”

“Violators are subject to a fine,” Ricca said. “In addition, if this conduct continues, it could cause a change in policy making our parks less dog friendly.”
