City Lights January



On Tuesday, November 17, 2020 and Monday, November 23, 2020, respecƟvely, the DeSoto

DeSoto has prided itself in recent years as being an extremely clean city. Several factors contribute to this. The City has a special liƩer crew that keeps the major thoroughfares clean and liƩer free and our streetsweeper makes the rounds on a regular basis. But historically, our Adopt‐a‐Street volunteers have made the biggest impact by providing the manpower to keep our residenƟal streets clear of liƩer. When the COVID‐19 shutdown occurred last spring it also limited the efforts of our Adopt‐a‐Street partners. Unfortunately we are now seeing an increase in the amount of liƩer along our streets. Faced with this reality, we would like to encourage our Adopt‐a‐ Street parƟcipants, as well as the community, to keep your streets clean. Please be cauƟous, pracƟce social distancing, wear your mask and gloves while collecƟng liƩer and use grabbers whenever possible. If you have any quesƟons, please call the City Manager’s office at 972.230.9643.
