Effort + Extra Officers Boost Community

The Community Standards Branch reports success with its' Clean it up, Fix it up Campaign.

 

"Fewer yards piled with garbage. Fewer lawns covered with weeds. Fewer walls riddled with graffiti. It’s all been part of Complaints and Investigation’s push to help neighbourhoods feel more livable this summer.

With five extra officers, the Clean It Up/Fix It Up campaign and help from Community Relations, we’ve really made a difference. Compared to last year, we’ve boosted performance in all areas, in several cases by more than 100 per cent.

And so far we’ve already removed almost 60,000 kg of nuisance materials during cleanups."
