THUNDER BAY – Street cleaning efforts after a long slow spring are underway. Thunder Bay crews were out this morning cleaning sidewalks and streets in the downtown Fort William neighbourhood this morning.
The annual job of cleaning up the gravel, and mess left by winter makes our streets and neighbourhoods less dusty.
Today’s efforts are likely to be assisted by rain in the forecast.
Across the downtown Fort William neighbourhood in recent weeks, there has been a stepped up effort to make the area cleaner and more inviting for people.
At the Kam River Park on the Fort William Waterfront, the lights along the pier have now been repaired. That effort has been a long time coming, but makes the walkway far safer at night. In addition clean up efforts appear to have been stepped up.
Making the city more inviting to tourists, and of course residents is a way of ensuring a better quality of life in Thunder Bay.
