Shelby County Mayor’s Fight Blight Team

Shelby County Government and other municipalities spend thousands of dollars each month to address roadside litter.  In response to that, the County Mayor’s Fight Blight Team will be working in some of the hardest hit communities this summer.

“I am hiring 100 individuals to work in key areas of Shelby County where litter is a constant problem.  Supervisors will also be hired to oversee the work teams.  Our program will help beautify our community and assist young people and others who need a job this summer,” said Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell, Jr.

Quick Facts about the County Mayor’s Fight Blight Team:

  • June 5th – July 28th, 8 a.m. – 2 p.m., Monday through Friday
  • Youth, 14-24 years-old, $9 per hour
  • Supervisors,  21-years-old (minimum), $12 per hour
  • Lunch and work team supplies will be provided

The work teams will fan out across the county to pick up roadside litter and conduct neighborhood beautification projects.  The non-profit organization Clean Memphis will assist with coordinating the cleanup efforts.  “We’re pleased to work alongside of Mayor Luttrell in this initiative to address the growing problem of litter.  It will also remind young people how easily trash damages the image of our community,” said Janet Boscarino, Executive Director of Clean Memphis.

The kickoff event for the blight team workers and supervisors is June 5th at the Benjamin Hooks Library at 3030 Poplar Avenue, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Applications for the County Mayor’s Fight Blight Team are only taken online.  Go to www.shelbycountytn.gov and look for the heading County Mayor’s Fight Blight Team.
