NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The Adams County Board of Supervisors would like some help catching litterbugs.

Road Manager Robbie Dollar says the county puts out cameras in high litter and illegal dump sites, but getting an accurate tag number can be difficult.

However, Dollar said the cameras do get descriptions of the vehicles and sometimes the perpetrator.

Supervisor Ricky Gray tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/2eg3sac) the $1,000 littering fine could not be leveed on a vehicle description, but a warning could be all that is required.

Supervisor and Board President Mike Lazarus says the county mostly uses inmate labor to clean up roadside litter, and for illegal dumpsites, the county is able to get grant money.

Dollar said he was hoping to clean up some illegal dump sites by the end of October.
