Spring roadside cleanup

Roadside clean up cancelled

The spring roadside clean up program for 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19. County crews are monitoring and picking up garbage as needed.

Every year non-profit groups help remove unwanted litter from select roadside ditches, while fundraising for their non-profit group or charity. Their efforts help to improve the look of our community.
