Clean up, clean up,
Clean, clean up,
Everybody do your share.
For our readers with children, the above phrases will be recognized as coming from a song by Barney, the Purple Dinosaur. But they are as apropos as anything else we can think of to remind our readers that springtime also means clean-up time.
This is the time of year when city street sweepers will begin making their regular patrols around the city and our automobiles will have to be off the streets at certain hours so our men and women in the DPW can do their jobs of keeping our streets clean. This is especially important at this time of year when the sand and the leftover debris from the winter that has been covered-over by snow has been revealed.
So please obey the parking regulations. A clean city is something that benefits everybody and in which all of us can take pride.
