CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - When Jefferson County Commissioner James K. Ruland drives home from Washington, D.C., one of the first things he sees as he crosses the state line is litter on the side of W.Va. 9.
"It's a holy mess," Ruland said at Thursday's County Commissioners meeting.
"You are assaulted visually by the trash on the road," Ruland said. "It's like we're living up to the stereotype we all hate."
Ruland said he would like to hear the community come up with suggestions for solving the problem at the next County Commissioners' meeting next Thursday night.
