The 22nd annual Britton Farms 4th of July Bike Parade took place on Saturday, July 5, 2014, and was blessed with perfect weather. The event, which was organized by Chris Keidel, was attended by between 40 and 50 kids, most of whom brought along one or more parental units. The Balloon Lady was a big hit. This year, frozen Popsicles replaced the previously traditional watermelons, a change which delighted kids as well as adults, since frozen Popsicles seem to not attract flies. BFH Association officers Glen Bolognese and John Stanton helped Chris out by judging the decorated bicycles entered in the parade and awarded prizes to 5 of the participants.
It’s been awhile since this reminder went out to our members. Britton Farms residents are reminded that “frequent or habitual” dog barking is not only UN-neighborly, but also a violation of the Hilliard City Code.
The second paragraph in the code requires pet owners to “immediately” clean up after your dog when walking through the neighborhood.
Please be a responsible pet owner; it’s been said there’s no such thing as a bad dog–only a bad owner.
505.16 NUISANCE CONDITIONS PROHIBITED; BARKING.
(a) No person being the owner, keeper or person having control of a dog, cat or other domestic animal or fowl, shall permit or allow such animal to annoy or disturb one or more of the inhabitants of two or more separate residences of this Municipality by the frequent or habitual howling, yelping, barking or making of other such noises within the corporate limits.
(b) No person being the owner, keeper or person having control of a dog, cat or other domestic animal or fowl shall permit such animal to dig or defecate on any public or private property in the City, other than the property of the owner or person in control of such animal, or allow any animal to damage any part of a lawn, tree, shrub, plant, building or other property, other than the property of the owner or person in control of such animal, by means of urination. The foregoing prohibition as to defecation shall not apply when the person in control of such animal immediately removes all feces deposited by it and disposes of the same in a sanitary manner.
(Ord. 93-48. Passed 6-28-93.)
