Norwalk Mayor tells businesses to clean up their act
The mayor, health commissioner and Norwalk police gave some curbside advice to Norwalk businesses Friday ? dispose of trash properly or face $99 tickets for every garbage violation.
The officials were responding to complaints by other businesses, including some business owners who took pictures of offenders? garbage heaps and turned them over to the city. Mayor Richard Moccia (D-Norwalk) spent most of the morning talking to these business owners, telling them they can't leave their garbage bags on the curb. The garbage must be disposed of in plastic containers.
The mayor says the problem has been going on for way too long. There has been widespread concern that the curbside trash will attract rodents and bugs, creating a public health crisis, especially given the recent heat wave. The mayor has promised that violators will be slapped with a $99 fine for every trash violation.
