Sweeping began Tuesday in the downtown area first. Crews plan to then branch out to various other locations continuing in the Andrew Mountain area as well as the areas around Rubber Avenue, Rubber Avenue Ext. and Gunntown Road.
The Public Works Department will announce areas scheduled for sweeping as the program continues. All borough residents and merchants are encouraged to sweep their sidewalks into the gutter line in advance of sweeping crews arriving. Sand should not be swept into piles, as the sweeper cannot pick up piles. Any litter, debris or leaves should be separated and disposed of normally. After areas to be swept are announced, residents are encouraged to get their cars off of the street to insure all streets are done to completion. For more information, visit www.naugatuck-ct.gov.
