Litter along county roads has reached an epidemic stage. Keeping our roads free from litter is a very time-consuming and expensive operation for the county. This program has gained attention and it is becoming a major part of the Keep Our Mountains Beautiful volunteer network. Fannin County appreciates each volunteer and their efforts to keep our county roads free of litter.
