Clean up the trash...

Now that the weather is getting better and there is someone in place to have homeowners clean up their areas, I was just wondering whose responsibility it is to pick up the trash along U.S. 191.

It’s sad to think that our little town has such a great impact on others to visit and yet there continues to be a lot of trash on the sides of the roads. Shouldn’t we want others to look at the entire beauty of our Moab?

I hope it won’t be another year before someone does something. After all, it is our town and someone must be getting paid to keep it clean — isn’t there?
