Candidate for Alderman of the 21st Ward Doris Lewis Brooks reminds us to don't forget about the alleys during clean up. "On a lot of our blocks there are abandon buildings that have accumulated a lot of trash such as paper, dead leaves, plastic bags and other garbage in the alley behind them.. We need to take the approach that if any part of the alley is garbage strewn, it makes the whole alley look bad. Also, garbage build up in any part of the alleys can provide a haven for rodents. There are people that have seen rodents so big, they though they were baby cats. When cleaning alleys, don't forget about the shrubs and trees that have grown along the edge of the alley. Cutting them down will also help prevent rodent infestation as well as helping to eliminate hiding places for sexual predators.
