Sioux Falls is using $11,500 in federal, state and city money to persuade dog owners to do a better job cleaning up after their pets.
The Argus Leader reports (http://argusne.ws/1l0cPFI ) that the will money will pay for billboards, radio spots and other messaging to explain the perils of pet waste.
Sioux Falls officials say people ought to know better than to leave dog waste unattended. But they also fear that reminders are becoming more necessary to combat the increasingly embarrassing problem in the city.
