Owner picks up garbage found on road


Brooks Bulletin

The owner of garbage that was dumped along JoAnn Trucking Road was forced by the county to pick it up or pay a fine.
Mark Harbicht, director of municipal services, told council last Thursday the owner was contacted and told to clean up items, including a couch, or the county will clean it up and send a bill.
Within 30 minutes of being contacted by a municipal officer, the owner cleaned up the items.
“I did question my staff on whether we followed them to the proper disposal site or whether we’re going to find it elsewhere,” said Harbicht.
He suggested instead of calling out the owner, it might be easier to clean and bill.
