Letter: Where is the trash czar hiding in Rowan County?
Who is the Salisbury/Rowan County trash czar and where is this person?
I am a concerned citizen who is sick of seeing our county roads littered with garbage, discarded furniture and vehicles, just to name a few. Old Mocksville Road looks like a trash dump and so does Ridge Road. You can see other roads like this all over the county.
What is wrong with people? Do they no take pride in their surroundings, home or property anymore?
What is it with our prison population? Is picking up trash too hard for them or maybe too degrading. They sit in their nice, comfortable cells while we pay taxes to keep them there to do nothing. What is wrong with this picture?
As for this trash czar, where is he or she hiding? Are we paying them a salary to sit in an office or drive around doing nothing. I know a family — mom, dad and at least seven children — who went out on a Saturday and picked up trash along Old Mocksville Road and hauled it off.
Then, in about a week, the road was littered all over again.
County commissioners, it’s time to do something about this matter sooner than later.
