What's it going to take to convince city leaders to take time to implement a legitimate street cleaning program?
The storm a few weeks ago has passed, and the city made a token effort to try and clean up the obvious trash left behind. But if you look around our island you can still see remnants of the disaster. The new storm sewers on Broadway are still filled with trash.
The main avenues are showing just how the trash floated to the middle of the streets due to the storm sewers being clogged. Take a look at the streets and service alleys that are loaded with storm-related debris, including tree and shrubbery cuttings and destroyed fencing parts.
I can assume the priorities have shifted to the hiring of city marshals, but for what reason? I see them parked by the side of the roads or acting as concierge at city hall.
Meanwhile, the funds are wasted on the truck parked outside city hall. These funds should be converted to make a legitimate effort to clean up our island and make it presentable to our residents and guests.
It looks like the cleanup effort has reached a stopping point; why?
