Navarro County Commissioner Eddie Moore is on site at Love Bridge Road today with his Precinct 3 employees and equipment to clean up ditches and county roads.
Commissioner Moore stated, “Illegal dumping is left up to each precinct and their staff to clean up. When you throw your trash on a county road, it becomes the problem of property owners as well as the county employees. During a clean up of illegal dumping, that takes time and effort from county employees from repairs and maintenance of roads and equipment.”
Two loads of garbage later, additional fees must be paid to the City of Corsicana to utilize their city dump.
Law enforcement have and will make arrests whenever possible. County Commissioners need your help reporting these crimes. If these crimes are not reported, charges cannot be filed.
NCSO Sheriff Elmer Tanner has stated, “Unfortunately, we do not have the manpower and can’t be everywhere all the time to prevent the worst of crimes, let alone to stop those individuals who are dumping on county roads, off bridges and almost in someone’s front or back yards. Navarro County is 1,086 square miles and we are doing what we can. My hope is that people will develop a conscience, want to abide by the laws we are hired to enforce and do what is right.”
Sheriff Tanner continued, “If any information is gathered at the scene, such as a name, address, witness or other evidence, as to the perpetrator who dumped illegally, they will be criminally charged or receive a citation.”
Bottom line is – If you see something, say something!
