Albany-- Sweepers hit the streets this morning in downtown Albany to kick off the Albany Dougherty Partnership in Pride. Merchants, city and county officials, Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful members and City Public Works employees worked together. 

The community-wide campaign is aimed at cleaning up litter and enhancing the area's overall appearance. The program is starting in downtown, but officials want to target the problems of each area in the city and county and make the environment more inviting for everyone.

"it's an awesome task, and we know that, but we have to begin somewhere. As we as a community look to improve the quality of life, by attracting industry, retailers and others we need to have an environment that is inviting, but beyond that we need to have an environment that is safe" said County Commissioner John Hayes.

Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful donated fifteen cigarette butt receptacles to be placed throughout the downtown area, along with brooms and dust pans to help merchants keep their store fronts free of litter.
