The Borough of Lansford Public Works Department has established a street sweeping schedule for the end of this month. All streets will be posted "no parking" on the day scheduled.
The borough requests the cooperation of residents and business owners in order for street sweeping to be performed as efficiently as possible.
Residents are also reminded to clean up after their pets on private and public property. Special concern must be shown for areas where children play. Councilman Lenny Kovach said, "Summer is coming and children will be spending a lot of time at our local pool and playgrounds.
Residents should get in the habit of carrying a small bag and scoop when they walk their dog."
The upcoming street sweeping schedule is as follows:
Thursday, March 25 - north sides of Patterson, Ridge, and Bertsch streets; Edgemont Avenue; and Oak Street.
Friday, March 26 - south sides of Patterson, Ridge, and Bertsch streets; Andrewsville; and Front Street.
Monday, March 29 - north side of Abbott Street; both sides of Water Street; and both sides of Springgarden and Snyder streets.
Tuesday, March 30 - all streets traveling north/south located on the west side of the borough.
Wednesday, March 31 - both sides of Kline Avenue; and all streets traveling north/south located on the east side of the borough.
