District A clean-up day is Saturday

District A Councilwoman Gloria Kates announces that Saturday, March 27, is District A Clean-up Day, focusing on the city’s nuisance ordinances.

Everyone’s help is needed and organizers are calling on all volunteers from: non-profit organizations, schools, community colleges, environmental clubs, service clubs, youth groups, churches, juvenile and adult probation, community service programs and the general public.

The focus will be on nuisances such as litter, trash, weeds and wild growth. Volunteers will be assigned to areas, but residents may adopt their own blocks.

Please bring mowers, weed eaters, hedge cutters, and choice of cutting tool in order to clean up. Dumpsters will be placed at Poplas and Redmond and Second Street and MLK. Kates requests volunteers should meet up at the corner of Poplas and Redmond, from 8 a.m. until noon.

District A extends north to City Limits Road, south to Fourth Avenue, east to Austin Street and west to parts of North Columbia Road.
COVID-19 preventive measures will be practiced. Please call 985-241-1819 for more information.
