The first “Operation Clean Sweep” for 2017 will begin on Monday, March 6, targeting Twin Points Road to Ledgerwood Road, where there are approximately 300 structures. “Operation Clean Sweep” is a three-week, multi-departmental, concentrated cleanup effort in the target area.
Week One: From March 6 - 10, two-person teams from the Planning Department’s Neighborhood Services Division will distribute information packets door-to-door. The packets contain important information concerning various city services offered during and after Operation Clean Sweep. The packet will also include a violation notice for properties identified as violating the city’s property maintenance ordinance.
Week Two: From March 13-17, the Solid Waste Department’s CAPS (Clean, Attractive Property Service) trucks will visit the neighborhood daily, collecting items placed curbside by residents. The city street sweeper will travel through the area, and Alternative Service workers from Hot Springs District Court will assist with cleanup.
Week Three: From March 20-24, Neighborhood Services inspectors will follow up on the violation notices issued during the first week and address any remaining violations. The Police Department will provide additional neighborhood patrols, targeting drug activity. Fire Department personnel will address fire safety concerns identified during the sweep. Animal Services will assist with any animal issues arising from door-to-door visits and inspections.
