and the fire marshal has been notified. trash is plaguing vigo county from side roads to parks. cleaning up the mess is one thing... but catching the people responsible can be even more difficult. now county commissioners are announcing a new way to catch people dumping trash. news 10's garrett brown has more on the plan to catch litterers in the act. it's new for you at 10. < you think of security cameras you usually think of outside businesses or your house. but now thanks to some funding from the vigo county solid waste management board these cameras can now be found around the county. people like john seddon loves to take advantage of vigo county's parks like hawthorn. but seddon also knows people abuse the parks as well as other places with trash dumping. "its so spacious here. i know the up keeps got to be difficult but i'll try to pick something up too if i can but yeah, don't like to see the trash." vigo county is working to crack down on these dumpers. that's after vigo county commissioners asked the solid waste management district for funding. all of which will go towards at least 10 trail cameras. they will be hard to see, but the cameras can very clearly see you. "what i envision is we'll work with landowners to say 'hey can we set these covert cameras up and place them' i hopes that we can actually catch people in the act." these places also include vigo county parks where there are issues. if suspects can be identified the pictures will then be given to law enforcement. it's a simple idea which is even getting city officials interested, too. "mayor asked for funding also in the meeting to help put some within the city so im very excited about this. we can actually take ideas, we get people together to support them and hopefully benefit the community as a whole." whether it is on back country roads or in the parks people like seddon hope it will make a difference. "well i think the parks are great, they're like jewels of the county so lets keep them nice and this is a good step in doing so." the soild waste management board approved twenty five hundred dollars for all the cameras. this will also include extra accessories for the cameras. back to you>
