This is also the reason why we continually strengthen Code Enforcement and ISD, were we have led an aggressive campaign to remove blight and vandalism from our community. Of the many good things that I can say about the people in Everett, one particular thing is, we are very proud to live here. When neighbors are out cutting their lawns, painting their homes, cleaning up in front of their house, that’s community pride. Here at City Hall, we accent that with our Street Sweeping Program. And, we are strict, just like many other cities when it comes to Street Sweeping. By instituting an aggressive street sweeping policy we have reduced nutrients and sediments from street surfaces and have reduced storm water runoff, improved the quality of storm water and recharged ground water sources, which reduces the potential for drought. I consider street sweeping one of those additional benefi ts of living in a modern greater-metropolitan area. There’s a mild investment of time for our residents, and the return on that investment is a cleaner, brighter, and vibrant City. Although sometimes inconvenient, street sweeping adds to the quality of our lives and is a well-regarded investment. There is one thing for sure, just like taxes, from April to November – Street Sweeping will always be there. On Saturday, May 11, I hope you will join us as we come together for the City’s Annual Spring Clean Up. We will be celebrating the beauty of the environment by working together as we clean our community. There will be various spots designated throughout the City for cleaning. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Everett DPW (19 Norman St.) at 8:00 a.m.
