It's only common sense and courtesy to pick up after your pet. Oh, yeah I forgot where I was.

I have a concern that I would like to have addressed during your meeting. The number of dogs an owner can have in their yard within 50 feet of any other residence in the county. My neighbor has up to 30 dogs at a time in her back yard which is 20 feet from our house. The noise and stinch is unbearable. There needs to be a regulation on the number of dogs allowed within close proximity to other homes. Animal control is out there every couple of weeks but they have no rules to be enforced and therefore, the dog owner has more rights than all the neighbors together.
Thank you for this consideration.

I don't think there is anything to consider, " Pick up your dogs poop!
