I would like to know why the streets of Indianapolis are so littered with trash. Our city is dirty and it is almost to the point of being embarrassing to drive down the city streets of Indianapolis. The streets are either in need of repair from "pot holes' or are just plain filthy from all of the trash on the ground. Our highways are affected also. What happened to the "Clean-up, Paint-up, Fix-up, mantra of yester-year, maybe we should re-implement some of the old ways of the past our cities were cleaner then. I hope that "pork-barrel spending" is not applicable in this situation.
