Where is the E.P. dog catcher?

Over here in East Prairie, whereís the dog catcher at? Guess they donít want to catch the dogs because they to take care of them and feed them and everything else. Iíve been staying over here with my mom on Helen Street and thereís about six dogs on Helen Street and a couple streets behind and a couple streets in front. Dogs have been running for a month. Mom says theyíve been doing this for three or four months. Same old dogs. Dog crap every where in your yard and you donít even have a dog. I just want to know where the city of East Prairie done. I know city hall shut down. Why donít they get the dog catcher out to catch some of these dogs and get them off of the street? Walk out to the mailbox and step in dog crap. Walk out in the back yard and step in dog crap. Only thing bad about is we donít have no dogs. Címon East Prairie, we pay a big ole water bill over here. Get the dog catcher working.

What are the parking laws?

Can you find out if parking your car and blocking the sidewalk illegal? This past weekend I saw a man pushing his wife in a wheelchair in a residential area and because of this car totally parked over the sidewalk he had to go into the street and had hard time getting back onto sidewalk. Thank you.
