Ketchikan, AK - Jerry Cegelske,
Code Enforcement Officer with the Ketchikan Gateway Borough,
reports that "people are continuing to make the citizens
of the borough responsible for their trash and junk." Cegelske
said he is looking for help in finding the owner of a camper
that has been dumped at Knutson Cove. He said, "It is bad
enough that they dump it, but then the problem is made worse
by the vandals that trash the trash."
Cegelske said, "Borough tax dollars, equipment and personnel
will be used to clean up the mess which should be used for purposes
such as schools and other public services. Dumping of vehicles
and trash is a continuing problem which costs the Borough and
robs the residents of goods and services they would otherwise
He said, "Each of us is being taxed to clean up the messes
left by these selfish people. We are being robbed by their actions
and we need to stop it now. There are proper disposal sites which
these people refuse to use, let's make them use the correct sites
so our tax dollars aren't wasted cleaning up their trash."
Cegelske is asking that anyone with information that would assist
him in identifying the owner of the camper dumped at Knutson
Cove to contact him at the Borough office.
