Community gathers for spring clean-up

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Community members came together to clean up their neighborhood Saturday morning.

The Fisher Street Community in Action clean-up is held every spring.

Community members, along with the Jonesboro Police Department and other city employees, helped with the effort.

Police Chief Rick Elliott said he enjoys being a part of the cleanup and helping beautify Jonesboro each year.

"It's good for Jonesboro and people taking pride in their community and their area," he said. "So, it's a good thing."

The Scenic Hills Association on the west end of Jonesboro also plans to host a clean-up the first weekend in May.

Chief Elliott said anyone who would like to organize a cleanup in their neighborhood can contact the city of Jonesboro.
