Letter: Trash Pickup and the county finances

Lorne Holler writes:
Hi, I may have a solution to 2 concerns within the county.

1. Yes, the trash along the roadways are bad, I agree. first solution is if you have the time to photograph the said trash, after you photograph it pick it up and take to either the transfer station or in a dumpster of your choosing. I have noticed that the school district has adopted some roadways. The counties emergency services has also adopted some roadways within the counties.

2. If our fiscal court is in need of finances, they should do what some of the volunteer fire departments are doing, have a fundraiser for the county. Each district magistrate should have at least 1-2 a quarter. This is instead of increasing our taxes. Everyone likes fundraisers especially if the food is good and the music is also. this could also be good thing for the food trucks and local businesses in the area. This is just a suggestion and an observation of what I have seen along the roadways and what I've read in the papers and heard around town in my travels.
