Note from Kathy Cummings: In response to the comments that have been circulating regarding the dog stations.
The dog stations are emptied on a regular basis, twice a week. Marc makes sure they are emptied on Monday for trash pick up on Tuesday and Thursday for trash pick up on Friday. Marc is not a volunteer, he is paid for trash pick up, light repair, and emptying the dog stations. During his rounds for trash and lights, he is watchful for things that may need attention such as the gate, lights that are out or broken, and vandalism. Marc’s contract stipulates he empty the stations on Mondays and Thursdays and he fulfills the duties spelled out in his contract.
Please be aware that although WoodLynne paid for the stations and maintains them, neighbors from other communities use them along with WoodLynne homeowners. They do become over full and smelly, especially in the warm months. If you are a homeowner/resident of WoodLynne and use the stations, please rethink leaving your dog’s waste at the stations if it is full. Do not overfill the can or leave the waste on the ground. Take it with you and put it with your own trash for pick up.
