BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - An eye-sore along Plank Road has been cleaned up, but at the expense of taxpayer dollars.
A public works crew was dispatched Tuesday to pick up hundreds of tires dumped alongside the road.
Department of Public Works says this issue is not limited to this neighborhood; trash sites like this are all over.
The State Department of Environmental Quality is also looking into the issue. If people are caught dumping trash, they could face hefty fines.
