Earlier this month, City Councilor Lydia Edwards spoke at both the North End Residents’ Association and North End Neighborhood Council November meetings to propose a new solution to the North End’s persistent trash problems – a voluntary clean streets program run by a local non-profit.
With this program, tenants, landlords and businesses could donate on a monthly basis, and the funds would cover additional street cleaning services to complement what the city already provides. A subcommittee within the non-profit would be established to determine the geographic area, hours and days for cleaning, and set a transparent budget so those donating to the program could see where their money is going.
