Media Release – February 2, 2017 -
The City of Neptune Beach has placed cardboard cutouts of dogs around the lake in Jarboe Park. In response to multiple complaints regarding duck and geese feces and in an effort to help keep our park safe and clean, the City is instituting this benign way of reducing the number of ducks and geese in Jarboe Park. The waste of the ducks and geese present a public health risk in such a confined space and we are concerned about the public welfare, especially our young park visitors. Over the next few months, the City will monitor these efforts to determine their effectiveness.
