FORT STOCKTON-Excessive trash has become a problem in the city of Fort Stockton and city council members are ready to take action.
It's safe to say trash seems to be an ongoing issue for many cities here in West Texas.
In Fort Stockton, city council members are working on finding solutions to fix this issue, but many residents, who CBS 7 spoke with today, don't agree there's a problem.
Council members in Fort Stockton said they’re tired of seeing trash blown through out town and want to create a better image for their city.
Some residents said its actually been a lot cleaner since the plastic bag ban passed.
Deputy Sheriff, Oscar Gallegos, said the wind is to blame for the trash seen through out the streets and yards, but he doesn’t consider it an issue.
According to the Fort Stockton Pioneer, code enforcement says they're going to figure out what they can do in terms of enforcement and could possibly start citing fines.
