Quick, efficient way to keep city streets clean

Sunday, March 15, 2009

To the Editor:

First off, I would like to thank the law enforcers of our city and county for working hard to clean up our streets and criminals.

But there is another clean up of our streets I would like to bring to their attention.

The taxpayers of this county are assisting in the everyday living arrangements of prisoners that eat, drink, sleep and use property paid for by this tax money.

I do not know how many of you have noticed lately how much garbage is collecting on our streets.

It is especially bad on the east side of Kroger and some of the smaller streets through town.

My point is, put to use the people who have wound up in jail and make it a part of their debt to society to get out and clean up our city.

I am sure the reasoning they are not out now is money. OK, fine.

I will volunteer to watch over a crew to go out and clean.

I am certain I am not the only one that will do so.

We should be proud of our homes and our streets that not only we who live here travel everyday, but the people who cross through everyday see.

We should also use all available resources that we have.

In this time of money crunching and down and depression, why not clean up our town and get rid of the bleak feeling we have?

There is nothing to make you feel better than a clean place to live.
