Fort Saskatchewan residents are being reminded to clean up their dog.
If dog waste is not picked up there's a $150 fine. If you're a repeat offender, the fine doubles ($300).
"Dogs are going to be dogs and they have to go to the bathroom somewhere, just try to remember to take that plastic bag with (you)," said City of Fort Saskatchewan municipal enforcement supervisor, Matt Lowther.
Unscooped dog waste is becoming a problem on some streets and at parks.
"Pick up after your dog. Nobody likes to see, smell or step in animal waste," added Lowther.
Plastic bags are available free of charge at most of the local parks.
