FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla.- The president of Fort Myers Beach little league is fighting for smelly dumpsters near the ball field to go.

Rick Loughrey is worried about the health and safety of the players, and says the smell of rotting trash is something people in the area just shouldn't be exposed too.

"We are hoping they can find a different place to locate these containers. We understand the town needs a facility for trash and a place to put it, but we just don't think this is the proper place in the park," said Loughrey.

The towns mayor said that council has asked staff to consider an alternative location.
