River CC discussed the dog poo situation this evening and Sheila Mayer reported that the Prom once again is becoming a winter brown strip. It was a conversation that has been had in previous years and other CCs in Nairn discuss this subject with depressing regularity too. Present also were Liz and Graham for the Highland Council and Louise Clark too who was the official responsible for getting this first meeting of River CC underway up to the point where the new chair was elected. Louise told the meeting the council was aware of the problem and had made efforts to clean it up. It was also reported that the dog warden was also taking action. Graham Marsden told the Gurn that he was going away to find out if Highland Council could up the dog-fouling fine from its present £50. The serial offenders obviously feel that the slight risk of suffering a fifty note hit to the pocket is well worth the risk.
There were also calls for action on broken bottles in the children's play area on the links and also on graffiti that has been appearing up the Riverside.
