Get Dates for Clean City Events and Get Ready for Community Spring Cleaning
Clean City Events! Mark your calendars!
April is the perfect time to spring clean our homes, backyards and the community. Let’s all do our part in putting the “Sparkle” back into the Sparkling City by the Sea!”
Community service hours are available for all City related events through Mayor Martinez’s office. All ages are encouraged to participate in our City’s continued litter abatement efforts. Please pass these valuable opportunities on. Thank you for your support!
