Weeds will no longer be a "growing problem" in downtown Provo. The Association of Involved Merchants is sponsoring a spring cleanup Friday, April 12.

All businesses are encouraged to clean and fix up their buildings, sidewalks, parking, windows and signs. Volunteers will be available to help."It is important that we take responsibility for keeping the area around our businesses clean. It improves the entire atmosphere of the downtown area," said Linda P. Walton, executive director of AIM.

Businesses that need help with projects need to contact the AIM office at 374-5449 to schedule volunteers, who will be available from noon until 5 p.m.
