Join Glasgow's New Adopt-A-City-Street Program
Friday, January 10, 2014
How can you contribute to your community and make a difference, send a message and educate others and have fun with friends all at the same time? Join Glasgow's Adopt-A-City-Street Program! By taking personal responsibility for one of your area roadways, you will be setting an example for your community. The environment is everyone's responsibility. Adopt-A-City-Street provides the opportunity to be a part of the solution.
Two-mile sections of street or neighborhood (subdivision) are adopted for a period of two years. Groups sign a contract with the City of Glasgow Department of Public Works, which recognizes the need and desirability of a clean environment and permits the group to contribute toward that effort. Volunteer groups may renew the contract at the end of the two years.
Safety guidelines are provided to volunteers and should be reviewed prior to each cleanup. Trash bags, safety vests and gloves can be obtained at the Department of Public Works and litter removal is provided by the Department of Public Works.
Groups interested in becoming members of the Adopt-A-City-Street Program can contact April Russell at Department of Public Works 270-651-5977.
