Within the last week, someone illegally dumped more than 300 dirty diapers and a burn barrel at the Rising Sun Brush Dump on Downey Street. State laws stipulate what may and may not be placed on the brush dump and abuses such as these could lead to our brush dump being closed. Employees of the City of Rising Sun work very hard to keep our City looking its very best and it is disheartening to witness such disrespect in action. Street Commissioner Paul Bovard has filed a report with the Rising Sun Police Department. If you see suspicious traffic in the area of the brush dump, or you know who illegally dumped there, please contact the Rising Sun Police Department at 812-438-3737.
