Reiterating a point he hit earlier in the morning in an appearance on The Bear 92.5, Mayor Ed Johnson asked residents to help make Fayetteville beautiful at Thursday night’s city council meeting.
An increasing number of online posts have noted the amount of trash scattered around the city. While applauding Public Works staff for the work they do helping to keep trash in order, he noted that it should not be their top priority.
“I’m making an appeal to all the citizens today to become more involved in our community,” said Johnson. “We’re asking citizens to help, especially the business owners who don’t sweep their parking lots and pick up trash.”
It tied in with his hopes for the council, including newly-elected Rich Hoffman in his first meeting on the dais, for the new year.
“We are looking forward to 2018 being a very active and busy year,” Johnson said. “I look forward to working with this council to continue to move the city towards becoming a premier city.”
