The City of Latrobe is issuing a reminder to pet owners to please be courteous to your neighbors, and also that it is a violation of the City of Latrobe Code to permit your pet to roam unattended off of the owners’ property and to leave dregs on a public or private area. The owner of a pet shall be responsible for removing any dregs from public or private property as soon as defecation occurs. Owners can be subject to fines for non-compliance.
The City of Latrobe’s Public Works and Code Enforcement Departments want to alert property owners that distributing or blowing grass clippings onto the street or sidewalk is a violation of City of Latrobe Code, and that any person violating this code will be subject to penalties.
- The City’s Street Sweeper is not equipped to handle the large amounts of grass clippings that are being blown and/or swept into the streets.
- An accumulation of grass clippings on the streets can obstruct the flow of run-off water to the storm drains, and can clog the drains.
- Grass clippings can be bagged and placed out for the weekly garbage pick-up. Note that these bags will need a City required garbage sticker.
Residents are reminded not to deposit anything into the catch basins. Catch basins are designed to carry the flow of run-off water to its discharge point. If foreign objects or materials are placed in the catch basins, such as oil, grass clippings, leaves, concrete, etc…, these materials can clog and/or flood the basin as well as end up in the Loyalhanna Creek.
