West Lindsey District Council is urging dog owners to pick up after their pet and is offering free dog mess bags from the Festival Hall in Market Rasen.
WLDC officer Joanna Riddell said: “The majority of dog owners are of course very responsible but we o remind people that it is an offence to fail to clean up after your dog. “
“We would encourage the public to report ongoing dog fouling problems so that we can clean up if necessary but also to help carry out any enforcement activities or to install bins if necessary. This is an issue local residents are rightly concerned about and one that we take very seriously.”
