Volunteers Needed: Alternate Parking Supplied by County
Trenton N.J. – The Trenton Police Department will post a notice for parking restrictions to make possible widespread street sweeping on Saturday, July 21st. Parking will be prohibited on selected streets; Broad at Lalor to the Battle Monument. Cleanup, however, will not in any way be restricted to these areas.
The county lot adjacent to the Cure Insurance Arena will be made available for those who would normally park on the selected streets.
The Mayor is also issuing a call to action for all volunteers, who would like to help with the cleanup, to please join him and Council members this Saturday.
The mayor maintained that “if we want to see real progress in our city, we’re going to need all hands on deck. No one person can do this job alone. We need to get community groups and individuals involved in order to enact real and permanent change.”
Prospective volunteers may contact Andrew Bobbitt at ABobbitt@trentonnj.org.
Councilman Muschal was able to rally 5 street sweepers from a Newark based company, but the mayor wants to invite all city beautification firms from around the state to “show Trenton what they have to offer.”
The mayor continued - “I’d love to see every able-bodied constituent out there with us on Saturday. My hope is that businesses see what Councilman Muschal was able to do, and take the initiative to help their Capital City.”
Mayor Gusciora ran a progressive, back to basics platform for his June electoral victory. Cleaning the city was second maybe only to filling the potholes in terms of his popular campaign promises.
