Caistor Town Council has voted to buy 10 dog fouling notices after a councillor reported the problem was ‘worse than ever’.

Speaking at the monthly council meeting in the town hall on October 8, Coun Deborah Barker said: “It’s (dog fouling) been worse than ever.

“It’s every single day and it’s just tiresome.”

Potential sites for the signs include Church Street, Bank Lane, North Street, Market Place, Fountain Street and High Street, the meeting was told.

But Coun Clive Rudd voted against the move.

He said: “It’s a waste of money.

“Responsible dog owners pick their own dog’s muck up and other people’s as well.

“People ignore speed signs and the same with dogs as well.”

The signs will cost £25 each, bringing the total to £250.

Councillors voted to apply for funding from West Lindsey District Council’s Councillor Initiative Fund.
