I'm pretty sure the Carrboro aldermen passed that ordinance prohibiting dog owners from letting their pets defecate on private property (except the dog owner's private property). We attended another local government meeting that same night, so if someone knows, please fill us in.
But the discussion is not over yet. Alderman Randee Haven O'Donnell e-mailed the town manager asking for more information on the town's response to these situations, which appear to concern cats.
a) Habitually or repeatedly defecates or urinates in children’s sandboxes, gardens, flower beds or other private property without the permission of the property owner;
b) Habitually or repeatedly injures or kills animals or birds, whether domesticated or not.
The latter's something most outdoor cat owners don't think about, but it's a big problem. I remember watching a PBS special a few years back that said in some parts of England, house cats are the biggest threat to native songbirds.
I'll try to give Randee a call next week to ask what's up.
