Operation Clean Sweep #2 is planned for the Buena Vista area beginning on Monday, July 15, through August 3.
Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) is a three-week, concentrated cleanup effort by multiple city departments in a targeted area focusing on approximately 400 structures.
Week One – Beginning Monday July 15-19, two-person teams from the Planning Department's Neighborhood Services Division will distribute informational packets door-to-door. The packets contain important information concerning various city services offered during and after OCS. The packets will also include a notice for properties identified as violating the city's property maintenance ordinance.
Week Two – Beginning Monday, July 22-26, the Solid Waste Department's Clean, Attractive Property Service (CAPS) trucks will visit the neighborhood daily, collecting items placed by residents for curbside pickup. The city street sweeper and the Hot Springs District Court alternative service workers will also travel throughout the area expanding the cleanup efforts.
Week Three – Beginning Monday, July 29-August 3, Neighborhood Services inspectors will follow up on any violation notices issued during Week One and address any remaining issues. The Police Department will provide additional neighborhood patrols, including targeting any drug activity. The Fire Department will address fire safety concerns identified during the sweep, and Animal Services will assist with any animal issues arising from door-to-door visits and inspections.
