BVA Mulls Bird Dropping Problems

(BRISTOL, VA) — Bristol, Virginia, leaders take action to prohibit feeding waterfowl in the city.
The City Council held first reading on an ordinance to stop the practice of feeding ducks and geese, especially at city parks.
The 5-0 vote followed a lengthy, graphic presentation that illustrated the sheer volume of droppings found recently at Cumberland Square Park and the Eastern Little League baseball field.
If approved on second reading, the ordinance would impose a $50 fine but only if signs prohibiting feeding are posted in the immediate area.
