“No “BUTTS”About It, It’s UGLY!”


      Have you ever noticed whendriving along the median that runs between North and South Canal Boulevard, orwhen stopped at a red light or at a stop sign of an intersection, how discardedcigarette butts mar the beautiful work of our city employees.  No matterhow much work and dedication is given when caring for the lawn and roadways ofthe City Of Thibodaux, the inconsideration of people isshown by the countless number of discarded cigarette butts.  Not only isit made of a synthetic material that does not disintegrate over time, it infact expands into a very noticeable clump of trash when mowed over.  


     Not only is smoking an unhealthyhabit, most people don’t realized or consider that when tossing such a smallitem, like a cigarette butt out of their car window they have committed acrime.  The crime is “Littering”.   Sec. 10-18. of theThibodaux Code of City Ordinances {Littering - No person shall litter anypublic or private premises, nor shall persons kindle or set fire to anycombustible material upon any public or private premises for the purpose ofdisposing of solid waste material.  Any person found in violation will befined $101.00.} 


 Ifone is found in violation of such ordinance, a Misdemeanor Summons can and willbe issued.  The Thibodaux Police Department asks that when discarding acigarette butt, please do so appropriately in helping to keep our CityBeautiful.
