WILLIAMSON — The Williamson Fire Department along with members of Veolia Water and Williamson Mayor Charlie Hatfield recently performed a tire cleanup in the Tug Fork River near the William H. Larry Tackett Memorial (Second Avenue) Bridge.

Nearly 150 tires were removed by crews from the stretch of river between the Second Avenue and Harvey Street bridges.

The tires will be given to the WV Department of Environmental Protection, which will properly dispose of them.
