Mayor Teri Johnston and the City Commissioners have proclaimed September 17th as National Cleanup Day.
“National Cleanup Day recognizes the need to protect the health and beauty of our city as well as our nation,” reads the proclamation. “The City of Key West takes great pride in its environment and supports a clean, safe community, now and in the future.”
The cleanup joins together the community, the City, and non-profit organizations for a cleaner environment, which promotes positive community values, property values, and the economic vitality of Key West and the Florida Keys.
Julie Brown, a member of the Mayor’s Beautification Committee, accepted the proclamation. She noted that there will be several locations around the island where groups can gather at 9 a.m. to help keep Key West beautiful. The cleanup will be followed by a picnic, she said.
“It’s a good way to get to know your neighbors,” she said. “Please join us on that day.
