Department of Public Works Clean-Up/Beautification Weekend Celebration 2011

The 2011 Department of Public Works Clean-Up/Beautification Weekend was successful and triumph.
Mayor Clinton I. Young, Jr. and Public Works Commissioner Terrence Horton announced that the City of Mount Vernon clean up weekend 2011 was a major success.
Crews from the Department of Public Works were joined by more than twenty-five neighborhood and community groups to give the city a good scrubbing at various locations around the city, including: Claremont Avenue, Lorraine Avenue, South Street Bridge, MacQuesten Parkway, California Road, Pelhamdale Avenue, East 7th and Fulton Lane just to name a few. The clean up weekend events were part of National Public Works Week.
