These fines are not new. Check out the ordinances in health dept. Sign also posted in Waterfront Park.

Good idea for all the reasons mentioned, but I thought the fines were way too high given the fines that we usually charge for other ordinance violations in the city.

Good plan, Anonymous. I'll run it by the editor.

As a related aside, when I lived in Boston I walked to work and while walking through the Public Garden, I (and others) would often slip on goose droppings left on the sidewalks. It was an actual hazard (and written about in the Globe).

Hi Anonymous:

Yes, I understand not to feed the geese, and why - but $100? Why not post the sign with an explanation of why we shouldn't feed the geese? Most people are pretty reasonable when things are explained to them (anyone who would be feeding geese, at any rate). You could probably shoot the geese and get fined less (although I'm not sure of that). Thanks

Hi Gillian:

If people feed the geese, the geese don't migrate. They hang around and that's what has been happening for years. It's not good for us, definitely not good for the geese. The fines are appropriate. Don't mess with mother nature!!
