Out-of-towners leaving garbage to be picked up
WILLIAMSPORT - A word to the wise to out-of-towners putting their trash out on Williamsport Streets: Officials have been noticing.
Former Williamsport Town Council member Earle R. Pereschuk told Mayor James G. McCleaf II and town council members Monday night that people from out of town have been bringing their garbage into town and putting it on streets to be picked up.
Town Clerk Donnie Stotlemyer acknowledged the problem and talked about how he took matters into his own hands.
Stotlemyer said he opened one of the bags of garbage and found a letter inside with a person's name on it.
Stotlemyer said he wrote the person a letter saying he would send the offender a bill for garbage pickup in town if the practice did not stop.
