Mr. Brown linked with the Chester County Adult Probation Office. He volunteered to oversee some of the community service work that the Court has ordered for some individuals and use those individuals to help clean up our City.
The Chester Avenue Bridge is the Amtrak Bridge that links Merchant Street with Coates Street in Coatesville. Mr. Brown said there is a thick coating of pigeon droppings on the bridge. Mr. Brown asked the Coatesville City Council if the Fire Department could pressure wash the walls of the Chester Avenue Bridge.
Mr. Brown said the large amount of pigeon droppings under the bridge are a health hazard for Coatesville residents walking under the bridge.
Chief Kevin Johnson said the environmental hazard from the pigeon droppings will need to be considered in the clean up.
Harvel also mentioned the hazard of putting out trash too many days ahead of pick up day in hot weather.
Mr. Brown’s efforts are part of the Cleanup efforts on Coatesville Impact Day of July 17th this Saturday. He would like to see the Fire Department pressure wash the Chester Avenue Bridge on Saturday July 17, 2010 if possible.
