Peru City Council will vote on “poop ordinance”

Posted by wlpo on May 30, 2016

Monday night could be the night where city leaders in Peru come down on homeowners with piles of poop in their yards.

The Peru City Council will vote to amend their “waste accumulations ordinance.” If enough council members agree, it could be “unlawful for the owner of any dog or cat to allow its feces to accumulate to the extent it creates a nuisance.” A nuisance is defined as “feces accumulation that interferes with the enjoyment of a neighboring property because of odor or attraction or breeding of vermin.”

The ordinance doesn’t mention how much a fine for too much poop in the yard will be.
