Clean streets for Cruisers
Volunteers sweep the streets, making two Coast cities squeaky clean for the start of the 21st annual Cruisin’ the Coast.
Members of every department in the City of D’Iberville pitched in to clean the streets this morning in preparation for Cruisers. Seventy D’Iberville employees, including first responders, teamed up with dozens of volunteers in Biloxi for this clean-up effort as well.
This tidy up campaign is nothing new in D’Iberville, but officials wanted to kick it up a notch considering the thousands of visitors here this week on the Gulf Coast. D’Iberville City Manager Clay Jones said, “We do this a few times a year already, but we figure it’s really important now because we have a bunch of visitors coming to our house. We want to make sure our house is clean so it’s that kind of concept and we’re asking all of our business community as well as our residents to step outside and clean up their part.”
This is a complete volunteer effort between the City of D’iberville and Biloxi. Dozens of students from Nativity BVM hit the streets to pick up litter as well.
