Junk tire collection on July 10

by Dege Legg

Tired of the mosquitoes? Get rid of the old tires.
You got old tires? Need a place to dump them? Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux is trying to clean up that mess and get rid of all those old tires. Stagnant water within old tires is a major breeding ground for mosquitoes. So if you've been inundated with high volumes of those stealthy pests, you might want to look around your property and make sure you don't have any old junk tires lying around. On July 10, he's putting out the call to residents with old tires to dispose of them from 8 a.m. noon at the Martin Luther King Recreation Center, located at 309 Cora St. in Lafayette. Persons physically unable to transport tires should call 291-8815.
