The Alton Beautification and Clean City Committee believes in strengthening neighborhoods through community participation in their efforts to beautify and improve the community by working together to take ownership of public spaces.
I have noticed that most residents pride themselves in the upkeep of their property, which is wonderful, but that upkeep usually ends at the sidewalk/curb.
As chairman of the committee, I would first like to inform everyone that the city ordinance requires residents to take care of their property to curb. By doing so, it will help enhance the overall visual appearance of our community and quality of life in our town.
Alton Beautification and Clean City Committee holds a variety of volunteer events to beautify our community. The next event is the City Wide Litter Pickup on Sept. 10, and I invite you to join us in our community beautification efforts.
