Editor’s note: Three cheers for Reading City Council!
Reading City Council wants neighborhoods cleaned up, and they know it’s going to take some toughness to do it.
At a workshop meeting Monday night, council heard an update on the city’s quality-of-life ticketing program by Lenin Agudo, community development director. The program has city workers issuing tickets to residents for problems like high weeds and trash piling up in yards.
Agudo presented council with a list of recommendations – created through feedback from council, city administrators and the public – aimed at improving the program.
One of the main issues, Agudo said, is making sure residents know what is acceptable and what isn’t.
