Matt Watson Talks Tire Shredder


Metro City Councilman Matt Watson joined the show today to talk about the possible tire shredder for Baton Rouge and where things stand on it.  A few weeks back, Watson came on the show to talk about the abundance of tires that take up vacant lots in Baton Rouge.  Those tires hold water which causes mosquitoes to repopulate quicker, since there have been recent reports of West Nile nationwide, the importance of disposing of the tires properly is even greater.  Matt says that he met with the Louisiana Department of Health who’s the recipient of the Grant that’s coming from the Center for Disease Control to potentially receive a tire shredder for Baton Rouge.  Watson talks about how the shredder will be purchased and how long it would take to receive it.

Matt also addresses the continuing issue with Republic Services and the lack of trash pickup.
