Yates seeking volunteers for veterans memorial clean-up

As we told you earlier this week, Councilman David Yates (D-25) has made keeping the district clean a top priority.

Today Yates announced a new initiative and is organizing a community clean-up event at the Southwest Government Center to help remove unsightly trash and litter around the Vietnam Memorial and Government Center building. They are seeking volunteers willing to help.

"We are taking residents concerns about cleaning up our neighborhoods seriously" says Yates, "Volunteer efforts like this will help with the awareness of the problem."

Yates cleaning up District 25

Councilman David Yates (D-25) is currently in negotiations with local businesses and community leaders to develop a more permanent solution to the problem of illegal dumping, primarily used tires.

Before the Christmas holiday, Councilman Yates and other volunteers cleaned up an illegal dumping site of discarded tires in the hopes that it would dissuade others from dumping in the area.

"Dumping is a big problem in District 25" says Yates, "We're tackling this problem head on and working to prevent this from continuing on a widespread scale."

Councilman Yates encourages residents to remain watchful and if you see someone dumping illegally, take down details- such as car color and make and description of the individual if possible, and report it to the Police.
