'Clean Sweep’ effort fixes up Medford

Brookhaven workers fixed 137 street signs and 66 street-lights and gathered more than a ton of garbage during a beautification effort in Medford, town officials said.

The effort, one of several in the town called “Operation Clean Sweep,” began late last month, officials said.

The Medford sweep targeted the area bordered by Railroad, Southaven, Oregon and Old Medford avenues.

Members of the town’s Quality of Life Task Force issued 35 violation notices to residents for infractions including unregistered vehicles, litter and keeping boats on front lawns, officials said. Many of the cited residents are working to correct the violations, officials said.

Councilman Tim Mazzei, who represents the area, said in a statement that the effort was intended to “clean up neighborhoods in my district and other areas of the town.”
