To the editor:
As a resident of Laurinburg, my husband and I want to know what can be done about the trash that is put/thrown in the streets and how it clogs our sewer drains?
Every time we get a downpour of rain, the straw/grass cuttings/trash goes right in the sewer drain and the water backs up. Now, the city workers do a good job of cleaning out the sewers but that doesn’t solve the problem. The straw/grass cuttings should be put at the curb at the end of your property…not in the street. Let’s all work together to keep our sewers from backing up and saving the city unwanted costs.
