After reporting on BHB December 14 that signs had suddenly appeared on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade mandating an exorbitant and sudden escalation of a $1,000 fine for failing to scoop your pooch’s poop, it turns out… the signs are phony!
News 12 Brooklyn shares that Department of Sanitation officials say the wrong health logo is printed on the sign, proving it’s a fake. The Parks Department logo is printed instead of the appropriate Sanitation Department seal. In addition, the max amount a person can be fined for failing to adhere to NYC’s pooper scooper ordinance remains $250—not a thousand bucks. Wowsah! (Photo: CT)
