OK - since it was brought up, let's talk about dog poop. Why is Shrewsbury littered with dog waste - the boat ramp area, SHS, the walk around the fields on Maple? What makes it OK to do that, people? It's a health hazard to humans and dogs. Buy bio bags in bulk like we do. And town - if there were a few trash receptacles in the winter, it might help.
