Marshall Says “No” to Littering
[Marshall, Texas] As a vital component of the citizen-driven Mobilize Marshall plan, the City of Marshall was charged to enhance the appearance of our community through an anti-littering campaign. With an education program from the volunteer citizen board of Keep Marshall Beautiful, our Marshall Police Department has also been proactive as requested by our residents.
Since implementation by the Marshall Police Department, there have been five littering citations and one littering warning issued.
Three (3) pleaded NO CONTEST and paid the citation.
One (1) plead GUILTY and paid the citation.
One (1) was not paid and went to a warrant.
One (1) was a warning citation.
“The anti-littering campaign is one component of the multi-stage approach to enhanced appearance for Mobilize Marshall. Other valuable components include increased code enforcement, address derelict buildings, establish neighborhood redevelopment program, improve curb appeal for the entire city, and establish gateway signage. I commend Chief Cliff Carruth and the Marshall Police Department for listening to the input of our citizens and taking action to deter littering in our community. The appearance of our city will play an essential role in the growth of existing businesses and the recruitment of new businesses. Economic Development will increase tax revenue and allow for much-needed investment in the city’s infrastructure,” stated Marshall City Manager Mark Rohr. “The actions of the Marshall Police Department serve as an example of how seriously the citizens of our city take the issue of littering.”
