“Operation Clean Sweep,” the city’s three-week, multi-departmental, concentrated cleanup effort, will begin on Monday, March 25. Approximately 350 structures are located within the target area, which stretches from East Grand to north of Wade Street, and Millcreek Road including Wise Street with East Grand as the northern border.
During the week of Monday, March 25, 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 packets will also include a violation notice for properties identified as violating the city’s property maintenance ordinance.
During the week of Monday, April 1, 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 augment the cleanup efforts.
During the week of Monday, April 8, Neighborhood Services inspectors will follow up on 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.
