Please note that our DPW has installed two new pet waste stations on Cannon Street that were awarded to us through a grant from the Albany County Soil and Water Conservation District. They will be installing two more near the Black Bridge and two others on Cohoes Avenue in the near future. Please look for them and use them if you are walking your pets in that area.
It is also a good time to remind all pet owners that they are responsible for picking up their pet waste anywhere in the Village, whether or not an official waste station is available where they walk. The Village has a “pooper scooper law” that is enforced and has resulted in fines of up to $250 for unlawful pet owners. Please bring a bag with you when walking your pet, simply clean up after them and dispose when you get home. Your neighbors thank you for your cooperation.
