‘Fight Blight’ team begins summer cleanup Monday

SHELBY COUNTY, TN (WMC) - An estimated 100 young people will soon be hitting the streets to clean up blight across Shelby County.

June 5 marks the start of Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell's Fight Blight Team.

The young adults will be deployed to pick up roadside litter and address neglected areas.

The job pays $9 an hour and is meant to keep people busy this summer by cleaning up the community.

They will be hard at work through the end of July.
