Last week was a busy one for the City of Lynwood’s Public Works Department and crews worked through the holidays to keep Lynwood safe and clean.
Here is just a very small sample of the work performed:
- Crews clean more than 94 miles of alleys of illegally dumped items, that included furniture and appliances, garden waste, construction debris, bags of trash and other miscellaneous debris.
- Cleared 64 catch basins to prevent overflow due to rain.
- Repaired 120 potholes citywide.
- Pressured washed bus shelters citywide 84 times.
- Cleaned and sanitized City facilities on a regular basis.
- Assessed speed bumps at ten locations near schools for repair or placement.
Also, a reminder that households will be billed for the cost of clean-up (including staff time, equipment fees and dumps fees) if they are found to have illegally dumped items on City property. Last week, six households were billed.
