Deputies Help During Community Clean Up Project

The Golden Gate Task Force recently targeted three streets and all alleyways to clean up and help keep Golden Gate City an enjoyable place to live.

Golden Gate District COPS Cpl. Robert Capizzi and Cpl. Bruce Cordivari, jail weekenders, Sheriff Observers, Golden Gate Civic Association, Code & Utility Enforcement, E.M.S., Waste Management and citizens worked together to pick up debris including trash, furniture, electronics, tires, mattresses and more. The jail weekenders helped remove graffiti by repainting alleyway fences.

During the four-hour event on Saturday, June 20, the group gathered 31,168 pounds of debris and trash and rounded up over 40 shopping carts left out on the streets.
