Cleanup was on the mind of resident Mark Billiard at a regular Cornell City Council meeting Oct. 4. During the public comments section of the meeting, Billiard shared concerns over the “trashiness” of Cornell.

“It’s like a third world country,” said Billiard.

Billiard says he has talked to Cornell Police Chief Brian Hurt, who said the department does not have the manpower needed to enforce cleanup.

Mayor Judy Talbot said Hurt has been instructed to cite certain people, and that he needs to follow through if the refuse is not cleared up.
