Dog waste bags coming to Fruitvale this month

Dog owners will no longer have any excuses when it comes to picking up doggy doo.

Fruitvale has purchased a new dog poop bag dispenser and waste container for Haines Park, one pole-mounted bag dispenser for Creekside Community Park and another for downtown.

“We’re getting a lot of complaints about dog excrement. People are saying, ‘If you give us bags, we’ll pick it up,’” said village administrator Lila Cresswell. “If you make it easy for people, they will accommodate.”

Area A has followed suit with two dispensers for Mazzochi Park.

Installation is expected this month.
