(Michigan City, IN) - A Michigan City official called attention to littering during Tuesday night's city council meeting.
City Councilman Don Pryzbylinski feels trash on the ground is a problem in too many areas of the city and asks people to use a trash can.
"I'm not just talking about a candy wrapper coming out of a car. I'm talking about Mcdonald's bags full of wrappers just tossed out the windows," Pryzbylinski said.
Pryzbylinski said he and many other people were taught not to litter while growing up and feels that education is needed to help curb the problem.
He said littering is worse in some parts of the city than others, but it's happening more often than it should.
"If you want a first-class city, somehow we have to get to the population to ask them to please don't litter," Pryzbylinski said.
Pryzbylinski also asked residents to remove signs advertising yard sales after their sales are over. He believes too many signs are left hanging and create a negative impression of the community.
