Let's all work together to beautify our city.  Take time to look over your property and eliminate any items that could be seen as unpleasant to the passerby.  The time/cost needed for each of us to clean our own property is so minimal but the rewards are great.  Don't litter!  Utilize what the city has to offer to help you keep your city presentable to your friends.  We have dumpsters, curb pickup for larger items, leaf bags, etc.  If you're not sure how to get rid of something, give us a call and together we'll raise the level of cleanliness and livability in our city.

Ongoing activities:  storm sewer cleaning from 24th Ave South to Service, storm sewer repair from Grand Blvd. to Hancock St, tree trimming throughout Lake Station starting in District 1, Sanitary sewer lift station upgrades, road patching on Central, Fairview, & Union as required;   Holiday Banners are removed and properly stored, updates will continue.
