Will it ever stop?

Mr. Cegelske, thank you for pictures and letters about the state
of trash in the community. Thank you even more for the constant
effort at clean up.
It dawned on me the other day that the people that are doing
the dumping may not be the most well read or knowledgeable about
how to dump the trash. The latest update that a junked car had
the form for the voucher may not support my thoughts...
Anyway, the most abused sights need a sign advising others that
dumping costs little to nothing AT THE DUMP. I think to have
them at the entrance to Revilla Road and down the two ends of
Tongass may do something to quell the tide of trash or at the
least cause the abusers a moment to ponder what they are doing
(I am hopeful). Also, you offer clean up projects all the time
in the community. Unfortunately the notice gets missed by me
often times and if you could increase the notice by two weeks
or more for these scheduled events I would like to be able to
participate. Lastly, the court orders community work service
hours on a regular basis and if you are not already on the roster
of possible community work service places, you should be. There
are numerous felons that owe community work service hours and
if you could increase that notice time a little bit, I am sure
that some of them would be happy to show up and help you out.
