That's how long the City Council took to come to a vote on dog poop. Twenty-six minutes.
The long and short of it is that they reduced the fines to $50, $75 & $100 from whatever they had originally proposed.
And then the discussion started about the part in the ordinance that says you can't dump your doggie's dump into a public barrel.
Twenty-six minutes later they decided to drop all language about where to dump the waste - because it kinda ruins the whole tourist vibe if you're forced to take doggie doo-doo home with you when you leave our fair city - and that was that.
As Councillor Barry Connell noted, the Council only took about 4 minutes to discuss a bond order of $18,500,000 for improvements to the water processing plant.
Ah, well ... I still get to step in poop because no one is going to enforce this out here on the island.
