To the editor:
I also see tons of sand and tree leaves on our city streets but have yet to see any street cleaners. We have lived in Lawrence for over 20 years, and I have never seen our city streets in such a mess and city maintenance so poor. Sand on the city streets is not only a hazard to driving but very damaging to curbs, as can be seen as we drive around town. Calls to the city maintenance department indicate they start sweeping streets at one end of the city and move to the other end.
Where are they? I would think a better idea would be to start with our downtown area and major streets where our visitors come and then move out to the residential areas. Please take pride in how our city appears and get it cleaned up.
