Three weeks ago I went for a walk, with guests from Germany, to show them Hunts Woods Park, thinking I would impress them with our nature trails, but, instead, as we walked down the stairs, I was embarrassed when the first thing we saw was garbage thrown all over the ground. When we walked down the path I mentioned this to people who I met along the way. Their reaction was "that's Mt. Vernon, we don't walk there." When I returned home I called the Dept. of Public Works and reported what I saw. After a few days, I called again, but the call was to no avail. I then went to the Commissioner's Office and reported this, personally, to Mr. Woods and was told he'd have someone over to clean it up. Three weeks later nothing has been done. Why?
Also, why aren't owner's of buildings issued tickets when they do not clean up in front of their buildings, to the curb.

Thank you,
