Dirty old town
The streets of South Boston were dirty before St. Patrick’s Day, now with the aftermath of parade debris scattered on our streets and sidewalks, it is down right upsetting. The street sweepers did make a loop of the parade route after the last float and band marched past but apparently it wasn’t enough. Couldn’t the City of Boston send out a crew to do a thorough clean up? So now what? We assume we are suppose to sit tight and wait the two weeks until street cleaning is in effect.
Maybe residents and businesses need to take matters into their own hands and do two things:
- Call the City of Boston to complain – Mayor’s Hotline: (617) 635-4500
- Sweep and pick up the area in front of our homes and businesses
Let’s make Southie clean and beautiful. There is no need to be looking at smashed green Solo cups, cigarette butts and broken bottles. Take pride Southie.
A great opportunity:
March 24th Volunteer Clean Up 10:30 a.m
Please join Southie Trees and their neighborhood partners for a post parade clean up and tree planting volunteer event. Meet at the South Boston Library at 10:30 a.m. for volunteering. Afterwards we’ll head to the library for a screening of our short film Uprooted and some food. It’ll be a great opportunity to learn about the benefits of trees as well as learning about other events coming up in the spring.
