NORTH HILLS - The Village of North Hills approved a plan to expand its pooper scooper law to include the dog owner's own property.

Mayor Marvin Natiss says the expanded ordinance was prompted by a complaint from a resident over unsanitary conditions.

Some residents are concerned the new rules would be difficult to report, but officials say cellphones will help.

According to Newsday, residents can be fined up to $200 if they don't properly clean up their dog's mess.
