  1. The ONLY reason this reminder was posted by the Village is that the Village Manager hates dogs.

  3. Seriously? So we should have the dog police give out tickets for longer that 6 feet leashes? Try policing our streets for speeders for a start. That is the kind of “control” Mr. Anonymous that benefits the safety and well being of all of the Village. I think it time that we ask our Village manager as well as some of its citizens to get their head out of their asses and look at the issues that are relevant and solve those problems.

  4. It’s disrespectful to use a leash longer than 6ft, or even worse, use no leash. Not everyone likes dogs, nor do they want to be near them.

  5. Living in a civilized society means obeying all laws, not picking and choosing which laws to abide by.

  6. Be a Responsible and Respectful Dog Owner. Follow the Laws, it’s a New Jersey Health law, its there for a reason. Have Respect for your neighbors and your neighbors lawns.

    1. Agreed… but check your survey… the 4 feet from the street ain’t yours

      1. Ever hear of curb appeal? Who takes care of that strip of grass – the homeowner does of course, fertilizer, weed killer, insecticides, mow & edge. So do it on YOUR Own grass strip/lawn & pick it up. Oh, I forgot you don’t like seeing brown/yellow dead grass by You. Walk fluffy in the street at the curb, curb your dog and keep the neighborhood looking nice.
