Garbage Problems? Bring It To The SB/PB Civic Tonight!

Your problems, that is. Not the garbage itself. That would be rude, sir.

The Sheepshead Bay / Plumb Beach Civic Association will be discussing issues of trash removal and other sanitation-related quality-of-life problems at their meeting tonight, and have invited officials from the Department of Sanitation to join the conversation and respond to concerns. We all know litter is a huge problem in the neighborhood; let the agency see a packed room at this meeting and know the community is serious about demanding more attention.

Aside from the usual garbage (har har!), the Sheepshead Bay / Plumb Beach Civic Association is also moving forward with Memorial Day Parade planning. We went last year for the first time, and the 500-person-strong event was a joyous and colorful celebration of our servicemen. They’re looking for volunteers, so come by tonight and offer to lend a hand!

The association meeting kicks off at 7:30 p.m. at the Baron De Kalb-Knights of Columbus, 3000 Emmons Avenue. There will be munchkins and coffee, which usually ensures my attendance.
