The second “Operation Clean Sweep” for 2013 will begin on Monday, September 9. The operation is targeting the Spring Street area bordered by East Grand Avenue, Chaucer Street, Crescent Avenue and Raymond Street, where there are approximately 350 structures. Operation Clean Sweep is the city’s three-week, multi-departmental, concentrated cleanup effort in the target area.
Week One - Beginning Monday, September 9, 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.
Week Two - Beginning Monday, September 16, the Sanitation Department’s CAPS (Clean, Attractive Property Service) trucks will visit the neighborhood daily, collecting items placed curbside by residents at no additional charge. The city street sweeper will travel through the area.
Week Three – Beginning Monday, September 23, 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.
