Cleaning up their act, Commissioner Comander and Public Works to host Community Clean-Up Weekend

"If my men are going to work, then I have to be there right along them," she said. "It also gives me a chance to talk to my constituents, which is wonderful."

Right now, Comander is trying to rearrange her schedule to show up at least once over the weekend. In the past, the community clean-ups only lasted a day.

"We're going to try it and see if it works," Comander said of extending the clean-up. "Hopefully, it will get more residents involved. You never know until you try."

Comander admitted unwanted items have made their way into the woods and on county roads in the past.

"Which is not cool," she exclaimed.

She hopes bringing the Dumpsters to the residents she serves will encourage them to do the right thing.

"In my heart I believe people want to be good," Comander said. "I hope residents take full advantage of it."
