Last Saturday, the City of North Tonawanda participated in the 14th “Canal Clean Sweep.”

The “Canal Clean Sweep” highlights the growing significance of the Canal System and the Canalway Trail System as a recreational and tourism destination across the state and in the City of North Tonawanda, by encouraging communities, not-for-profit organizations and volunteers to engage in cleanup and beautification activities.  

“I would like to thank this year’s sponsors, Hunt Real Estate Wheatfield branch, Walmart and The Law Office of Luke Brown LLC for helping out, as well as our Waterfront Commission and the many volunteers that come out to help keep such a vital city resource clean, beautiful and enticing for those wishing to use it for recreation purposes,” North Tonawanda Mayor Arthur Pappas said in a recent release.

Rakes, gloves, trash bags and more were supplied by the Recreation and Parks Department.
