The Village of Northport is reminding dog owners that they are responsible for cleaning up after their dogs on public property such as streets and parks.
It has been a long-standing tradition for Village of Northport to make parks dog friendly but dog owners have the responsibility to pick up after their pets.
Doggie cleanup bag stations are available in all the parks.
The village said there has been a spike of complaints that dog owners are not cleaning up. Violators are subject to a fine. In addition, the village said, that if problems continue, it may have to change policies that could make the parks less dog friendly.
