Council starts new dog trial

Carterton District Council [CDC] has installed signs at the entrances and exits of Clareville Cemetery asking visitors to keep their dogs on leashes and pick up any waste they produce, following a decision at a council meeting on May 1. “Our parks and reserves team have noticed an increase in dogs fouling the cemetery and other green spaces over the past few weeks and months,” CDC community services and facilities manager Glenda Seville said. “The remedy is simple, and dog owners need to take responsibility for their dogs in public spaces.” Signage will be trialled for a couple of months, and if this measure proves unsuccessful, dogs will be prohibited from the cemetery completely.
