A gift must be wrapped - Keep our public spaces clean

Wednesday, 11 July, 2012

 

The City of Chateauguay is appealing to the civic conscience of dog owners in order to keep public spaces as clean as possible and launch its campaign called 'A gift must be wrapped'.

"We want to benefit from our public spaces,'' emphasized Chateauguay Mayoress Nathalie Simon. “Once again, we remind dog owners to help us keep public spaces clean.”

In accordance with the municipal bylaw, we remind you that the presence of all dogs in parks and playgrounds, including children's outdoor games area is forbidden, whether or not the animal is held on a leash.*

Also, municipal employees have been noticing since the beginning of the summer that many dog owners do not scoop up the excrements of their four legged companion. Therefore, still in accordance with the municipal bylaw, we are reminding you that such excrements must be scooped up.** 

Dog owners are invited to use the dog park installations situated at the entrance to the Fernand Seguin Ecological Centre where the dog can walk freely as long as its owner stays on site to pick up the excrements and looks after the animal's safety, and that of other visitors. Covering an area of 1,400 square metres and fully fenced in, this park is accessible via Brisebois Blvd. between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Notices with the campaign's slogan 'A gift must be wrapped' will be installed throughout the municipality in order to remind everyone of the municipal bylaw on this issue and of the fines related to it. 

*Bylaw: G-2000, article 14.12. The presence of all dogs in parks and playgrounds, including children's outdoor games area, whether or not the animal is kept on  a leash , is forbidden, except for public places which are especially laid out and reserved for them, on the condition that they be constantly held on a leash. This condition does not apply in the case of a guide dog accompanying a person who is sight-impaired or a dog belonging to someone in a wheelchair. 

**Bylaw G-2000, article 14.22. A dog's guardian must immediately remove the excrements produced by this dog on private or public property by disposing of it in a hygienic manner.  For this purpose, the guardian must be equipped at all times with a scoop, receptacle, a plastic bag or all other similar equipment enabling him or her to scoop up the excrements in an adequate manner.
