The Henderson Commissioners Board meeting Tuesday focused on ways to keep the city of Henderson clean, and what better way to do it then a community cleanup.

Ellen Redding, President of The Henderson Chamber of Commerce presented the Proposal called Take Ten Tuesday.

"We talked about ways and opening our eyes basically because we live here, we look around and we don't really notice sometimes the trash or how much there is of that trash," said Redding. " So we picked a day, we just picked Tuesday, take ten minutes to walk outside you're door whether it's your home or your business and pick up the trash around."

The proposal comes as the community sees an increase in litter around town.

The presentation of this idea spurred another, from Commissioner Robert Pruitt.

"When she said that, I'm thinking about getting in touch with the police department and have our police department come in certain communities and help clean up, " said Pruitt. " So that it shines light with the community and how we interact with the police. I think it will be awesome."

For some members in the community like Arron Demoss, the idea of taking ten minutes out of the day to help clean the city is already catching on.

"I mean I've got a lot of time in the afternoon so I mean ten minutes is not that much time to free up to do something like that just to keep everything clean and looking nice." said Demoss.

With this idea only being a proposal Redding says she looks forward to the community embracing it.

We woke up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, there won’t be any drastic changes this afternoon. Increasing cloud cover will be likely as a cold northerly flow continues ushering in chilly air. Highs won’t be going very far, we’ll likely only reach the mid to upper 30s Tri-State wide. We’re tracking a little bit of winter weather out to our north and west. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with a chance of flurries/light rain. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
