PET CLEAN UP MATERIALS

The Millersburg Borough Council would like to remind pet owners of the borough ordinances governing pet waste disposal.

Anyone walking a pet must carry materials for the clean up and disposal of all animal
feces. Cleaning and disposal materials such as plastic baggies must be carried in plain
view. The ordinance imposes a fine of $50 for a first offense and $300 for subsequent
offenses.

This ordinance applies to pet owners walking dogs or other animals in any public area of
Millersburg borough including on sidewalks and streets as well as parks.

Residents are further reminded that pets are not allowed in Market Square, except on the
sidewalks along Market Street.

Cleaning up after your pets is not only the law, it is also a courtesy to other residents and
visitors who use the sidewalks and parks.

Questions may be directed to Borough Manager Chris McGann at 717-692-2389.
