A citywide cleanup will be held Saturday, May 18, the week before Memorial Day.

Town Board members decided having the date so close to Memorial Day would allow the town to be spruced up for the holiday.Weed mowing will coincide with the cleanup, and refuse along roadsides collected.

In addition, the Mona Irrigation Co. will be asked to determine which ditches are no longer needed to deliver water so those ditches can be filled at the time of the cleanup.

Various residents will be assigned to oversee work in each quarter of the town and on each block, said Darlene Fowkes, board member.
