The City of Cape Girardeau’s Keep Cape Beautiful Committee (KCB) conducted the annual litter index evaluation in spring of 2015 and again in 2016.
In 2015, the KCB published a statement indicating that the “assessment group overall was surprised that there was not more litter than reported” at that time. Now in 2016, the City Council was pleased to hear that litter had generally decreased since that initial report in 2015.
Despite the good news, work continues. Both Council and KCB President Brian Langois discussed the need to reduce cigarette butt and other litter through increased awareness.
