The Assign-A-Highway program makes use of probationers to clean up sections of Scott County's roads. Scott County implemented the program in early 2007. As of May 2010, Scott County has around 75 probationers assigned resulting in the clean-up of approximately 125 miles of roadway. The Litter Control Office hopes to see the number of active probationers grow to 50-100 people. This will result in increased beautification and cost savings for Scott County.
