Who lookout for litter in

By Susie Catchen

Tired of seeing people
litter and not being able to
do anything about it'.’ A
new policy has just been
added to Lexington’s "Let‘s
Keep lt Clean" program
that allows an easy way to
report people who litter.

The LexingtonFayette
Environmental Commis-
sion and the Division of Po-
lice have joined forces to
develop the new program
to help reduce littering in
Fayette County.

To report someone lit-
tering. you just have to fill
out a postcard form. mark

it with a postage stamp anti
drop it in the mail. The
postcards have been dis-
tributed throughout Lex-
ington and can be found at
libraries. banks. grocery
stores and liquor stores.

For people on campus,
cards will be available at
the Kernel newsroom. The
cards have a space for the
vehicle license number anti
the date. time and location
ofthe incident.

When the Environmen-
tal Commission receives
the cards. they will turn
them over to the Division
of Police. The police then
mails the litter btigs a letter
warning them that littering

is illegal anti reminding
them to think before throw-
ing otit their trash.

“Anyone in Fayette
County seen littering can be
reported. Cars that are reg
istered outside of Fayette
County can still be report-
ed. and a letter will be sent
to those offenders." said As—
sistant Chief Ulysses Berry
of the Division of Police.

Philip Weissinger.
chairman of the Environ-
mental Commission.
helped improve the pro-
gram and encouraged legal

“We had a similar pro-
gram to this and a bill was
passed at the federal level

that reduced the amount of
information accessible to
the public.“ Weissinger
said. “It knocked the pro-
gram out for a while btit we
finally got it straightened
out because individuals
don‘t have to know the
name of the person they
are reporting. That will be
dealt with through the po~
lice department."

The new program will
help reduce the number of
people who litter. but they
must assume responsibility
for their actions.

"We will keep track of
the program and repeat of‘
fenders. btit it is only a
warning or notice program

just to notify offenders. not
to pursue legal action ll'an
actual otlicer \ces someone
littering. they can be fined
up to $500." Berry \ttl(i.
The new program is e\~
pected to be llltil't‘ effective
than the previous program
because of the cooperation
between the commission
and police.
“Education-wise. i
think it will become very
effective because of the
publicity anti getting the in
formation out to the public.
People will second guess
their actions. When anyone
gets a letter from the police
department. they reali/e
they might get caught. l
