Common Councillor Fed Up With Illegal Dumping

The city has been plagued by illegal dumping for years now and Ward 4 Common Councillor David Merrithew wants something concrete done about. 

He's suggesting surveillance cameras be set up to identify those people doing it and then prosecuting them.

Merrithew is talking about no fewer than ten cameras that could be checked weekly and then relocated if necessary. That idea will be talked about tonight at Council.

Merrithew also would like to see a weekend designated in the spring for a city wide cleanup. Merrithew says it could be called, in a play on words, "Litterally Saint John".
