In light of Ridgefield\u2019s ongoing dog poop situation, a seven-member town committee \u2014 including First Selectman Rudy Marconi \u2014 has formed with the sole purpose of resolving the smelly issue. \u201cPeople were getting very upset about people not having any kind of common decency, and leaving their piles of dog waste,\u201d said committee member and Town Treasurer Molly McGeehin. The committee's efforts will first be felt downtown \u2014 on the rail trail, where three girl scouts from Troop 50784 are planning to install five or six dog waste receptacles; and then on Main Street, where an incoming freshman at Ridgefield High School \u2014 Logan Lachemann\u2014 \u00a0is installing similar poop scoopers. Both parties are members of the newly formed committee. Toxic McGeehin said there appears to be some confusion among town residents regarding the organic qualities of their pups\u2019 doo-doo. \u201cOne of the things I would really like to get across is that some people believe that dog waste is actually some kind of fertilizer, and they don\u2019t realize how incredibly toxic it is,\u201d she said. \u201cI\u2019ve had people argue with me it\u2019s better to leave it there than putting it in a bag, but I can\u2019t even tell you how toxic dog waste actually is.\u201d The girls scouts and the East Ridge eighth grader are now in the process of requiring the necessary permits from the town engineer and affected property owners.
