To the Editor:

I can’t believe it’s necessary for our town administrators to be addressing dog poop and bag-it kits. Whatever happened to personal responsibility and plain old decency?

I think the situation was much worse years ago, as walking from my office on Catoonah to the town hall was like navigating a minefield. Regardless of the extent, it galls me that any Ridgefield dog owner would need to be told what to do. Common sense and decency should prevail and they shouldn’t need a reminder from the selectmen who have much more important issues to be concerned with.
