Greenwood neighborhood appeals to city for ditch cleanup




A group of neighbors worried that the trees growing up in the ditch near their home would cause an accident, and they were tired of seeing the trash, weeds and tall grass that was never maintained.

At least six residents in the Clearbrook Park neighborhood knew they wanted someone to take care of the weeds, trees and trash in the nearby Tracy ditch. But they weren’t sure who was responsible for mowing the grass and cutting down the weeds and saplings, and they didn’t know they paid a fee to the city to keep the ditch clean.

Now, after doing their research, they hope the city will use some of the more than $100,000 residents have paid in past years to cut down trees, mow the grass, and remove the weeds and trash.
