DPW staff have played a huge part in assisting the Police Rangers with clearing homeless encampments in the City. With the new full time and part time Police Rangers in place, DPW maintenance crews are assisting them on almost a weekly basis with encampment cleanups. Both the Parks and Streets Division assist in this and are always willing to help. This isn’t an easy job and it does expose the crews to more risks then their normal course of work, but they realize its importance in mitigating fire hazards, keeping the City clean and residents happy. Most of the time this is a thankless job, so please be aware of what DPW staff do to keep the City clean and safe. In the photos you will see Camilo Bayot and a contracted labor crew clearing out an encampment near Belle Ave.
