To the Editor,
I was shocked to see people volunteering to clean up downtown Weirton. Don't we have a city clean-up crew to do just that?
If so just why can't they do this job? Do we only have street repair guys? I would be ashamed to ask for people to clean up a town that should be done by Weirton's city crew.
We as citizens need to find out why this is happening and just what jobs can only be done by the city. The two plastic bags were finally picked up in front of the city building while the small park looks terrible next to it.
It's a shame we had to ask for volunteers to pick up two bags of trash that were sitting there before Christmas. I guess we will be seeing volunteers shoveling our snow off the streets next in the upcoming winter. Oops, I guess the state needs to get involved. That's the only answer I received!
