Litter is expensive

Southern District Transportation Commissioner Wayne Brown was inthe county Thursday to promote the 14th Annual Trash Bash. While wecommend MDOT employees and others who picked up litter alongLincoln County highways, we wish this is one event that would neverhappen again.

Why? Well, look at this comment from Commissioner Brown.

“MDOT is forced to spend well over $2 million per year inremoving litter from Mississippi highways. We could easily spendthree times that much out there.”

Folks, he’s talking about taxpayer dollars — money that couldbe used better spent repairing roads instead of cleaning them.

Please, don’t litter.
