A problem that plagues many municipalities is the accumulation of garbage, trash, litter and debris. Unfortunately, no health department can address litter since litter cannot affect the public's health. What we can intercede with is the accumulation of garbage, trash and rubbish that sometimes gathers on empty lots, inside garages and even inside of homes.
One thing we should all remember is that we are a community. We are only as strong as our weakest links and when you throw your garbage out of your rear door, refuse to clean up after yourself or simply create an unsanitary living environment, you affect the health of all those around you. These are problems we are concerned about and to submit an anonymous complaint, simply call or email us.
