Tonight we learned, via the city's answers to separate 311 complaints, that it might be best to wait until dog waste left by inconsiderate dog owners has turned kind of solid before contacting 311.
At 10:08 a.m. on Saturday, a grossed out citizen filed a 311 complaint about doggy doo all along Washington Street in Dorchester Lower Mills.
The city marked the complaint closed Sunday night:
Per Public Works: Sand thrown down. Unable to pick up hardly any of it due to it not being solidified.
At 11:35 a.m. another disgusted citizen filed a 311 complaint about a horrible person with a dog on Commercial Street, across from the Coast Guard base, in the North End:
I witnessed the dog owner/waker did not pick up the poop while she had poop bag in her hand, and I was sitting in front of my door. She is Caucasian, wore a hat, and has a big black dog.
The city also marked this case closed tonight, with this note:
Per Public Works: Picked up the solidified piece.
