AIRDRIE, ALBERTA – Public Works crews at the City of Airdrie would like to extend their gratitude to residents for helping them make a clean sweep. City of Airdrie crews completed residential street sweeping on June 6. It took just five weeks to complete the sweep not including five rain days.
“This year’s program was another successful year. We had great cooperation from our residents and from mother nature,” says Mike Avramenko, Team Leader of Roads with the City of Airdrie.
The number of cars towed remained close to last year’s number with 165 cars towed in 2013 over 154 in 2012.
“The slight increase in tows can likely be attributed to growth in our city. Although we would like to see that number at zero, we will continue to educate residents and advertise the towing program,” added Avramenko.
Sweeping crews would like to thank all parties for their contributions including Fleet for keeping the equipment on the road, Municipal Enforcement for going door to door to remind residents to move their cars and the media for helping us get the word out to residents about the sweeping program.
“It really is a team effort to get the streets cleared of winter debris – we all play a part in making a clean sweep,” said Avramenko.
