Doggone shame

At this week’s Greytown Community Board meeting, board member Jo Woodcock brought up the issue of dog poo bag dispensers in the township. Woodcock said a member of the community had told her the dispensers have not been supplied for two years. Board members resolved to find out who or what was responsible for topping up the dispensers and arrange for them to be stocked again.
