Continuing the cleaning revolution: Increased fine for dog owners who do not clean up after their dogs
The Municipality of Jerusalem increases the fine to 730 NIS ( from 475 NIS in the past).
This decision was approved this week by the city council, at the request of Mayor Moshe Lion, as part of the clean-up reform he promotes for the well-being of residents and visitors of Jerusalem.
The municipality points out that in recent years, law enforcement has intensified in this regard.
For example, in 2018 - 80 fines were issued, in 2019 — 544 fines were issued , in 2020 — 1123 fines were issued, and in the first quarter of 2021, 763 fines were issued.
It should be noted that the increase in law enforcement also arises from many requests from residents.
Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion: "We continue to vigorously promote the reform of the cleaning of Jerusalem - and the results are felt. I congratulate the Municipality and the local community councils for their Operations for the cleaning of the city. It is a huge effort for the well-being of residents. "
