Councilman David Greenfield will join New York City Sanitation Department Commissioner John Doherty today to present two new haulster trucks to the Brooklyn 12 Sanitation Garage at 5602 19th Avenue. The event takes place at 2:30 p.m.
The new equipment, which will be used for cleaning streets year-round and to clear snow in the winter, was funded by Greenfield with $305,708 from last year’s budget.
Greenfield has been crusading for cleaner streets in his district since the blizzard of last winter immobilized many Bensonhurst drivers.
He hopes that by providing trucks for the sanitation department, there won’t be a repeat of last year’s events.
Further, his spokesperson noted that the trucks are great for year-round use as well. They maneuver well through narrow streets and will be used to help clean parts of the neighborhood and the surrounding areas.
Here’s hoping for a sparkling clean neighborhood and safe winter driving.
