(LaPorte, IN) - LaPorte mayor Tom Dermody is applauding citizens for doing their part in shining up the apple. There’s been a real effort the past few weeks to pick up litter after the mayor appealed for people to get involved in cleaning up the city.
The park department is among those involved in picking up litter at New Porte Landing and other areas of the city. A number of residents have also reported problem areas that need correcting and picked up their properties.
One of the incentives is receiving a “LaPorte Proud” t-shirt by posting before and after pictures on the mayor’s Facebook page and the city website. Dermody says the street department is also lending a hand by aggressively sweeping the curbs. The mayor says there are still plenty of t-shirts to give out for people helping with the cause.
