Sullivan County commissioners decided to defer a vote on whether or not to bring back leaf and brush removal.
During their meeting Monday, some commissioners worried all residents will be paying for a service only part of the county can use, since the highway department can only pick up brush on county roads.
However, others said they've received an overwhelming amount of phone calls to bring the service back.
News 5 spoke with Highway Commissioner Terry Shaffer who told us, he gets 20 to 30 calls a day about this issue, and since his department already has the trucks and manpower, he said it makes sense.
"It would be a waste. I mean, if you can't use them, they're just sitting there rusting now, but it's our job to try to take care of the citizens of Sullivan County, and that's what I'm going to do," Shaffer said.
Shaffer added he feels it would make the county cleaner and the roads safer.
County commissioners, highway department officials, and the county attorney are planning to meet to discuss the issue within the next month.
