To Town of Davidson officials:
We are keeping Sam Barger’s dog for a month. Walking him along the bike path, it has come to our attention that fellow dog walkers DO pick up dog poop in plastic bags BUT rather than carry the bags to the nearest receptacle, just deposit them along the bike path fence.
In addition, there is a continuing amount of plastic trash (bottles, cups) and paper goods that appear daily on the asphalt of the path as well as the grass borders. PLEASE can we have a waste container at Pat Knox’s driveway and another in the wider grass area at the roundabout and/or at the intersection of Davidson-Concord Road and Westmoreland Drive.
When the bike path was first proposed, we understood that a town employee would pick up trash along the route twice a week. Fiscal restraints in the town probably tossed that line item out a long time ago but PLEASE consider waste receptacles/trash cans at the indicated places ASAP. A bike path border of carefully tied plastic bags filled with dog poop is unacceptable to us.
Hugh and Brenda Barger
