Identify, Punish Those Who Dump

Littering is an ongoing evil. Most of the time the culprits are people throwing soft-drink cups and the like out their car windows. A few litterbugs in Steubenville seem to have upped their game.

As city officials were told earlier this month, large-scale dumping has become a problem. Speaking of the municipal marina area, city Parks and Recreation Director Lori Fetheroff noted one dump site “looked like an entire household of stuff…”

Efforts are made to identify those responsible for such dumping, of course. If the problem continues in Steubenville, city officials may want to consider steps such as police surveillance and/or closed-circuit cameras to catch the litterbugs.

A few apprehensions followed by stiff punishment would do a world of good to keep Steubenville clean.
