The City of Richland reminds dog owners of their responsibility to pick up after their dogs.  Residents are encouraged to carry their own bags, pick up and safely deposit dog droppings in garbage receptacles.  The City has placed courtesy bag stands in parks and along bike paths to aid in the prompt removal of droppings. Under the City code, title 7, "It is unlawful for any owner to permit any dog, cat or other animal to deposit fecal matter on any property not that of his owner, and the same is declared to be a nuisance."  Responsible pet owners help keep our parks and community healthier, which improves the quality of life for those enjoying the outdoors.
