The Monrovia City Police has arrested four persons for illegally disposing of dirt in the streets of Monrovia.
Illegal disposal of garbage violates City Ordinance # 1, Section 10 of the Monrovia city law, which among other things, speaks against littering.
Johnson Flomo age 29, Amie Kamara age 31, Doris Suware age 37 and Iken Achembing age 32 were arrested early Monday morning and have been detained at the Monrovia City Police cell. They are residents of Benson, Clay street, and Saye Town communities.
Their action, according to the City Ordinance Law, warrants a fined of Fifty United States Dollars (US$50) and is to be paid into the coffers of the Monrovia City government.
Failure on their part to pay this amount, the city government will have no alternative but to take them to the Monrovia City Court for prosecution.
This, according to the Monrovia City Corporation, will serve as a deterrent for would-be violators.
“The Monrovia City Corporation is not taking this issue of illegal and indiscriminate waste disposal by residents lightly,” A released from the MCC issued on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 in Monrovia revealed.
“We have deployed city police officers at every skip bucket (garbage bin) location in Monrovia, this is intended to track those individuals who are in the constant habit of illegally disposing of dirt,” the release added.
