CHARLESTON -- The mayor is disgusted by a problem plaguing the city park. After last week's snow melted, this was left behind. Dogs did their business, but owners didn't pick up, so county workers were sent in to take care of it.

Because of the problem, the city will now issue citations to people who don't clean up after their dogs. Anyone who sees someone not following the rules can report the person.

Park District
