When walking your dog in the community, even in your yard, remember that it should be leashed. Also, it is important to remember to immediately clean up after your pet, as all yards are common ground maintained by the HOA. Take along a baggie with you to pick up waste with and then dispose of it properly. Not only is this a restriction for The Fountains, it is a law for the city of Lee’s Summit.
By taking a few simple steps to clean up after your pet, you can contribute not only to the beautification of our community, but also towards the elimination of one of the most irritating nuisances for others who also want to enjoy the common ground.
