See, Click, Fix: Cleaning up garbage in alleys

Issues with garbage and litter made some of you turn to See Click Fix this week. Issues with garbage and litter made some of you turn to See Click Fix this week.
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

This week, I looked through all the reports on our See, Click, Fix site and found this picture. One of our viewers snapped it. It's garbage, dumped in the alley behind homes on Clinton Avenue in Huntsville.

We checked it out and found just what the picture showed in the 1600 block of Clinton Avenue. There were tiles plopped near the side of the back road. According to the person reporting on See, Click Fix, they've been there for at least several months. There's really no way of knowing who dumped it there.

The city assigned cleanup to the Green Team, a group founded in 1977 to clean up the community. The Sparkle Team's supervisor is now on his way to get it cleaned up.

If you see something like this in the Rocket City, post it on See, Click, Fix, and the Green Team will look into it.

Now, back to the roads where we get a lot of reports about potholes. Most are more like cracks, but I can confirm we found a pothole. It's on Drake Avenue at the intersection with L&N Drive. We found several drivers hitting it, heading east, either going straight or turning south on L&N. Public Works is on it. They're set to fix it soon. We'll check back for you.

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
