We pay the price for those who dump trash

Just wanted to thank the person(s) on John Born Road who towed that decrepit van and travel trailer out to Pleasant Valley Road for all the rest of us to enjoy. You were in such a hurry to get back home that you left your tow cable. I’m sure your neighbors are glad the eyesore is gone, although the wild animals are probably upset that you moved their home.

It’s people like you who can’t properly dispose of your trash that cost the rest of us valuable time, resources, and tax dollars cleaning up after you. I hope the county follows the skid marks from the locked up tires back to your driveway (like I did). Of course, maybe that’s why you couldn’t get it to the junk yard or back to your own yard.
