It can involve a fine, but not necessarily. In effect he has been told 'don't do this'. The city may have regulations on warnings before fines, but the main thing is that they have recorded what is happening.

The traditional thing to do in such a situation (if you KNOW it is his animals) is to pick up the droppings and deposit them on his front porch.

A citation can either be a warning or a fine.

Often such a citation leads to escalating punishments, just as often they can prove a pattern of abuse in a civil trial.

It is an accusation of a crime, like a traffic citation or a grand jury indictment.

You proverbially write a ticket.

The problem is now documented.
