Long Island City, NY October 4, 2012 -
The residents of Long Island City are asking for the City to clean its streets.
Whereas we are residents of Long Island City who pay taxes and would like to benefit from the same municipal services the city provides to its other residents
Whereas the population of Hunters Point, Long Island City has grown exponentially yet still does not have regularly scheduled street cleaning
Whereas the buildup of debris at the curbs from the absence of street cleaning causes multiple medical problems and is unsightly
Whereas the lack of street cleaning exacerbates the lack of parking as non-residents often leave their vehicles unattended on our streets for weeks or months
Whereas we have been told that street cleaning has been coming for years with no concrete schedule from the Department of Sanitation or other city officials
An online petition is available at:
The Petition is also available from OurLIC as a PDF file. [ PETITION ]
Dr. Moitre Savaard urges "We need hundreds of signatures to make our point."
Another resident, Yooshin, has offered to coordinate among the different buildings. Signed petitions can be dropped scanned to me, faxed to (718)785-9855, or dropped off to my attention at The Gantry 4821 5th Street or QueensWest Health 5-31 50th Ave.
