Don’t waste taxpayer money by throwing at litter problem

To the Editor,


Would you please help me understand “Talking trash again” that was published on March 19.


How many people and cars do we get for between $125,000 and 150,000? Lets not forget the gas, insurance and the “threat of a fine.”


You cannot ride very far in this county without seeing a law officer of some sort. If I understand Sheriff Kenneth Sealey’s remark, he is saying that his deputies are not doing their best. He told the commissioners that his deputies would keep a “keener eye out for litterers.”


While people who litter aren’t the brightest bulbs, most undereducated people cannot afford the wine and liquor from the bottles that are thrown out in my yard. I have picked up bags of them and other trash.


I am sure that if we hire a trash warden, that he will catch them.


An education only educates, it has never made anyone smart. It seems to me the commissioners are willing to do what they do best, blow taxpayers money with absolutely no results. It would be extremely nice if the commissioners would spend the taxpayers’ money like their own, or think before they spend the taxpayers’ money.


I am willing to give the county $1,000 for every little conviction they get if they will give me $1 for every piece of litter I pick up. Please tell me how all this is going to clean our roads.
