ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- Spill dirt on a St. George street and you had better clean it up. If not, the city will do the work and bill you for it.

During its meeting last week, the City Council approved a Clean Streets Policy to help keep dirt and debris off the streets, especially around construction sites.

The policy allows the city to give a 24-hour notice to people who are engaged in activities that dirty the streets. If the people do not clean the streets themselves, the city will do the cleaning and bill the responsible party.

The city encroachment officer also will meet with property owners or contractors to encourage them to clean vehicles before they enter city streets. Some contractors put down a rock bed approaching the street so the dirt on tires comes off on the rocks rather than on the street.
