St. Martin Sheriff Becket Breaux has announced a new Litter Abatement Program.

A litter pick-up crew, consiting of two deputies and six inmates, is working five days a week on parish roads and state highways. The program has two benefits: cleaning up parish roads, and rehabilitation for offenders in the parish jail.

If you know of a road or area in need of attention from the newly implemented Litter Abatement Program, you can send a request to the sheriff's Property and Project Manager, Kim Angelle, kangelle@stmartinsheriff.org.

Sheriff Breaux says he is committed to keeping St. Martin Parish safe and beautiful, but he wants to remind everyone that littering is still a finable offense. You can be fined up to $500.00 if you are caught littering the streets of the parish, he says, and asks that everyone does their part in helping to keep roadways and ditches free of debris by not littering.
