KEEPING THE EAST SIDE CLEAN

KEEPING THE EAST SIDE CLEAN

There’s a familiar face back on the streets of the East Side, keeping the area litter-free and friendly.

The East Side Business Improvement District has hired Henry Brown to maintain a clean & friendly neighborhood. Henry formerly worked for Riverworks and was at one time assigned to the East Side BID as part of a litter /street maintenance contract with the organization. This time Henry has launched his own business and is working exclusively on the East Side. He’ll not only clean-up in front of businesses but makes rounds in the immediate neighborhood after busy weekends.
