(MURFREESBORO) If calls to WGNS' local issue broadcasts are any indication, the public is very concerned with the piles of tree limbs, shrubs and debris stacked alongside Murfreesboro streets . . .
City Manager Craig Tindall explained . . .
A local resident responded . . .
The caller cited several examples, one being city owned property at 2001 West College Street--that's adjacent to the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital that is being constructed on Garrison Drive near West College . . .
The next morning during the radio broadcast, a text message was received: Just passed by 2001 W College--yard cut, trash picked up and workers putting plywood over the doors thanks to WGNS. (photos of that property are shown above).
Radio responders were also concerned with debris on the roadway in the 900 block of North Church Street.

Calls about several junk cars on a lot in the Cason Lane area were reported. In addition, several comments were received about a home on East Main Street, across from Sir Pizza, that had several old cars, tires, old lawn mower and other items packing most of the space on this prestigious roadway.
