Properties sought for city cleanup efforts

Community volunteers will be out in force later this month cleaning up some of the neighborhoods in Columbus most in need of help. But volunteers will also be in those neighborhoods today, hoping to find projects for the April 22 and 23rd Clean Up/Green Up.

The city will be concentrating on eight neighborhoods for this cleanup event including State Street and the Pence Park neighborhood. Workers from the city’s Department of Public Works and volunteers from Cummins and from First Christian Church will be doing projects such as mowing yards, removing trash and junk appliances, trimming shrubs, gathering materials for recycling and cleaning out gutters.

If you would like help with your property you can talk to the volunteers canvassing neighborhoods today or you have until Friday, April 15th to register with First Christian Church. You can call Bonnie Jarvis at 812.379.4491
