A $20,000 grant for continuing a Miami County Municipal Court community service litter prevention program was approved Tuesday, Jan. 27, by the county commission.
The grant is paid from the county Transfer Station fund and goes to the court’s Intensive Supervised Program litter program.
In the program, people placed on probation and ordered to perform community service are assigned to litter clean up along routes to the county Transfer Station. The station, located on County Road 25A between Troy and Piqua, serves as the countywide refuse collection site. Refuse then is transferred from the station for disposal.
The grant pays for an employee to supervise the weekly collection of litter, a transport van and associated program costs. In 2014, 12 tons of litter was picked up by program participants, Doug Evans, assistant county sanitary engineer, told the commission during a recent meeting. NANCY BOWMAN, CONTRIBUTING WRITER
