Almost every conversation heard around town is centered on the badly needed rains we have received this week.

From Pawnee to Papalote and Berclair to Cadiz, everyone will benefit from this “Memorial Day miracle.”

Now that our yards, fields and pastures are green and growing for the foreseeable future, it truly would be a wonderful sight if Beeville area citizens would clean up their surroundings.

And, just in time, City Hall has announced its annual Spring Clean event for Saturday, May 31.

Ronald “Buddy” Hardy, who is in charge of the popular campaign, encourages city residents to take advantage of this opportunity to get rid of all the trash and rubbish that have been piling up around their homes.

“We’re taking everything except tires, batteries, paint and oil,” Hardy said. Also, this year no one will be required to show a copy of a paid city utility bill to enter the city equipment yard on South Jackson Street.

As usual, vehicles will enter the yard the back way by driving through the parking lot at the Police Training Center on West Milam Street. Drivers will exit at the yard’s front gate on South Jackson Street.

City employees will be there to help them unload their pickups and trailers, with front end loaders to assist in moving heavy items and large loads to the containers. Republic Services again will provide large, roll-off containers.

Hardy is hoping for neighbors to assist elderly or disabled residents clean up their homes and yards. Anything that needs to be discarded can be piled up at curbside for pickup.

He asks those good neighbors to call City Hall at 358-4641 to let the staff know where the piles will be located.

He’s also desirous of another large turnout of civic organizations, scout groups, church groups and others to provide volunteer labor.

Volunteers are asked to meet at the Police Training Center Saturday morning and to bring trailers and pickups. Hardy said the city always provides a good lunch and refreshments for all persons assisting.

Let’s all pitch in and help improve our community’s appearance.
