I

have a question...why is the county only picking up on state maintained roads? Do the residents on private roads not pay the same taxes in the county? If the county isn't going to provide a service because you don't live on a state maintained road...then their taxes should be lowered so they don't have to pay to have others debris picked up. Those residents are already saving the county and state tax dollars as the roads they live on don't have to be maintained....
