HERMISTON - The Hermiston street department is asking its residents to prepare for spring by cleaning up their sidewalks. The department issued a letter this week encouraging citizens to sweep red sanding rock off sidewalks and into the gutter so street-sweeper trucks can pick it up.

The city also included a reminder that throwing garbage or dirt into the street from one's property is a violation of the Hermiston's Code of Ordinances.

For more information, call Ron Sivey, street superintendent, at 561-7605, or Duane Kilsdonk, code enforcement officer, at 667-5030.
