Idaho Falls City officials kicked off the planning process for a Citywide Cleanup March 12 in the Mayor's Office. The initial meeting was well attended.
Cherish F, Kathy S, Michelle C-Q, Brad C, John P, Dave C, Eddie F, Rev. Lyn C., John C, Melissa S, Tony A, Susan S, Knut M, and Jared F spent more than an hour discussing how to tackle the challenging logistics of a large-scale citywide cleanup.
The group decided May 11-16 would be the best time frame for such an activity.
The group reached consensus that the Interfaith Council would assist city planners in dividing the city into logical geographical areas for the week long clean up event.
Discussion also took place regarding how to match all of the volunteers with the cleanup areas. Ideas were aired about volunteer registration and post-event recognition. City officials hope to facilitate online volunteer registration via the City's website.
City Departments on hand for the meeting included Parks & Recreation, Sanitation, Code Enforcement, Planning, Public Affairs, the City Police Department and the Mayor's Office.
The group will meet again March 23.
