curtis talk head rightMUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (3/14/19) — Muhlenberg County Judge-Executive Curtis McGehee has been working with several community leaders throughout the county to promote cleanup efforts of the littering problem brought up during public comment during February’s fiscal court meeting.

McGehee issued a press release stating members of the fiscal court, Central City Tourism, Kentucky State Police, Greenville and Powderly police departments, Muhlenberg County Sheriff’s Office, Felix Martin Foundation, the 20/20 Vision group, Muhlenberg Alliance for Progress, Muhlenberg Board of Education, Muhlenberg County Detention Center and Muhlenberg County Road Department.

Muhlenberg County Jailer Terry Nunley is planning to use inmates to clean up roadways beginning no later than April 8, said McGehee.

A cleanup campaign committee was formed to oversee cleanup projects, enforcement of littering laws, community cooperation and education.

“The committee hopes that our beautiful county will reach its full potential and that every person will be involved in this effort,” McGehee said in the press release. “Please consider picking up litter that you encounter (when it is safe to do so), make sure that your trash is disposed of properly, and contact law enforcement if you are aware of or encounter illegal dumping or littering. So please join us in taking pride of Muhlenberg County.”
