Fines double for poop offenders

Keep North Bergen Clean, Curb Your Dog

Starting tomorrow, North Bergen pet owners who do not clean up after their furry friend's "deposits" will be hit with a $200 fine.

Fines were doubled in a recent Board of Commissioners meeting to help cut down on offenders.

“Two hundred dollars is generally a pretty steep fine to hit somebody with, and we can always increase it if we find it doesn’t work,” said Mayor Nicholas Sacco.

North Bergen Police Chief Robert Dowd vowed to dispatch foot patrols after noting that the biggest challenge is catching offenders in the act of neglecting to clean up.
