Trash on our roadsides - we have to do better
By Vicky Pike
Mayor Hoots gave us an update on all things city at the Columbia Adair Chamber of Commerce meeting Tuesday. One of her points was that over a hundred bags of garbage were collected in a recent pickup in the city by Class D inmates.
In comment time at the end, I urged folks to be aware of the current situation on our roadways of all types of trash being thrown out or lost from backs of vehicles going to the transfer station. We have to do better than this. The interchange areas are where potential investors come into our community. If they see what I did over the weekend, they may drive on to another community to invest.
Please pick up what you can around your property and if you need help with larger spills please call the Adair County Judge's office if it's in the county and they will take your information.
If you see someone loosing bags on the Highway, get pictures of it, and plate numbers. I went out in my area Saturday and picked up several bags on 61 south and Leslie Willis road. Several bags were broken open with glass, metal, and other sharp objects in them I swept to the side of the road until a crew could come out with proper gloves and shovels to clear the area.
We all have to work together for the betterment of our community. Thank you for doing your part to help us grow and prosper whether it's in the city or the county, we all live in Adair County. We appreciate Mayor Hoots for all she does for our city. Thanks to the lunch sponsors, Reed Brothers Insurance. Have a wonderful day all.
