City of Andalusia residents encouraged to help clean up community Nov. 1-6

The City of Andalusia has set Nov. 1-6 as “clean-up days,” a fall campaign to clean up trash and litter.

The dates were chosen to coincide with the fall clean-up dates chosen by Covington County PALS.

Area residents are encouraged to clean up the community in preparation for Absolutely Andalusia Homecoming 2010, which begins Thurs., Nov. 11.

Free, heavy-duty trash bags are available at the Andalusia Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Homecoming 2010 committee has chosen the yellow pansy as the “Homecoming” flower.

City horticulturist Vanessa Nelson said this week that temperatures have dropped enough to plant pansies and that city workers will begin changing plantings in the coming week.
