Dog-doo Scofflaws

A recent article in The Daily Reporter explains how one condo association addressed the unfortunate situation of condo owners failing to pick up after their pooches. The solution? Doggy DNA testing. It was simply a matter of revising the condo rules. Now, condo owners who have dogs must pay $60 to have their dogs' cheeks swabbed to record DNA information. When a dog is not picked up after, the sample is tested (a $50 charge), and the offending dog's owner is responsible for the testing charge plus a $100 fine. Problem solved.
