Letter Says Spokane Streets are Dirty

Spokesman-Review Letter to the Editor
Spokane Friendly, but Dirty


I wish the mayor would walk around the city and see how dirty the streets are.

In the neighborhoods, there are cigarette butts, rocks and garbage on the sidewalks in practically every single area. It is so embarrassing. The downtown sidewalks are as bad as the neighborhoods, with thousands of cigarette butts all over the place. What a mess! Does anybody care?
This might be the friendly city, but it’s not the clean one.

What are your thoughts? Is Spokane really that dirty? And if so, what can be done about it? There's not even money to fix our streets, so how would we pay to keep them clean? Ideas?
