The BID is receiving calls regarding the abrupt scaling back of the City’s encampment and sidewalk cleanups.  The cleanups returned in September after an 18-month absence due to Covid.  They were curtailed in October.  Details regarding why are not entirely clear.  The crews still perform their 14-day schedule, but do only spot-cleaning rather than the more intensive (and necessary!) sidewalk disinfection.  The BID is doing all it can to persuade the City to restart the comprehensive cleanups.
