Alexandria wins Cleanest City Contest
The City of Alexandria was awarded first place on April 18 in the Louisiana Garden Club Federation Cleanest City Contest District VIII. Alexandria now moves on to compete on the state level against Lake Charles and Monroe.
“I am proud of our employees and our citizens who work hard every day to keep our streets clean and our yards beautiful,” said Mayor Jeff Hall. “It shows that we all care very much about our city, and that others recognize our pride.”
The goal of the LGCF Cleanest City Contest is to help combat litter and to encourage everyone to keep Louisiana clean and beautiful. The contest, which is in its 61st year, helps raise awareness of the importance of a clean environment.
Because education is a critical factor in teaching people about the importance of a clean environment, the LGCF also encourages schools to participate in an anti-litter poster contest and a cleanest school contest.
