Letter: Road sign theft and litter

Victoria Pike writes:
I would like to thank Bridget Compton for all the extra hours and efforts she puts into trying to do this thankless job. Calling in and telling us it's awful in my neighborhood whether road signs are being stolen that risks lives in the community they are stolen from or the litter is terrible on my road.

Well I'm here to tell you it's everywhere. We know it. Spent 2 1/2 hrs this morning discussing it. Bottom line. You have to help us. Take pictures of something if you see it and be willing to step up if necessary to say yes I saw it and yes I'll sign a complaint. They have to have witnesses. Not being nasty here just frustrated. You can't convict somebody without proof. You must be willing to provide that proof. A picture alone is NOT enough. If you care enough to call and complain then it is evident you care about your community. Thank you for that.

However, some folks are reluctant to step on toes and take the next step of signing a complaint. Sometimes it's fear of retribution and sometimes it's just I'd rather not get involved. Whatever your issue might be, please please help us clean our community up and stop the stealing and vandalizing of our signs. It might be your family member that needs help and the road sign can't be found costing precious minutes getting to them. Thank you ahead of time for your help. --Vicky
