Tired of the crap

One business owner’s facebook post has drawn attention to an ongoing dog problem, and comments show that many residents have similar complaints.

Erin Flesher, owner of Erin’s Studio of Hair & Nail Design in Downtown Barberton, has spent the past year trying to keep her property clean. Nearby residents have been letting their dogs defecate on the empty lot next to her shop without picking it up, and Flesher says the situation has gotten out of control. She has  contacted the police department, health department and the mayor, but feels that nothing is being done.

    I live on 5th Street near lake Anna. When the rental house next to me was vacant for a year a nearby resident encouraged their two large dogs to defecate there and never cleaned it up. It was a nightmare of odor and flies. Thankfully there is someone living in that rental house now so my nightmare has ended (at least temporarily). The pet owners need to be held accountable.
