DOC, MSC aid City with beach cleanup
Riverfront beach cleanup efforts took place in mid-December, with the City coordinating with the Department Of Corrections (DOC)/New Castle Community Correction Centers and the Municipal Services Commission (MSC). The City is always grateful when our Public Works crews can team up with MSC personnel on projects to benefit the public.
Added special thanks to Lt. McLellan, Cpl. Stokes, Cpl. Ewasko and of course all the hard working crew members. It is estimated as many as 75 dump truck loads of material were removed off the beach — much of it wood washed ashore with the tide, and some of it in huge pieces of whole trees and trunks.
And a final thank you on this project goes to Rep. J.J. Johnson, who helped arrange for the City to dispose of all the wood collected free of charge, in cooperation with the Peninsula Compost Group. Plans are to have the crews back in the spring and then periodically in the future.
