County clean-up under way, city’s efforts begin Saturday

Spring clean-up efforts have begun countywide this week with an extended time period at certain locations as part of the annual Don’t Mess with Texas and Keep America Beautiful campaigns.

Franklin County commissioners began their clean-up efforts last Saturday at their respective county maintenance barn sites. Those with dumpsters will continue through April 14 or until the dumpsters are filled - which ever comes first. The City of Mount Vernon will begin a 13-day effort Saturday, April 14 and continue Monday through Saturday, April 16-21. For details about trash disposal for the City and each of the County precincts, see the April 12 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
