The municipal decree comes following complaints from local residents (read our edition of July 29). The latter denounced in particular the lack of civility of certain owners of doggies, who obviously did not pick up the excrement of their animals. “I can’t get used to it anymore. It’s beyond melaments Paul Boudoube, the first magistrate. When I go to the park, I feel ashamed. It’s a bunch of dog poo. It is true that there are virtuous people who pick up. But for now, I’m not happy. If the inhabitants become nicer again, we may be able to reopen access to animals.”

In the meantime, the walks are done elsewhere… “Initially, we do prevention. But if we have to verbalize, we will verbalize”warns Serge Pellegrino, safety and risk prevention assistant.

Please note that waste bags are available at the town hall. And they are free.
