I was driving through Shenectady yesterday. I do live here in the city. I am AMAZED at how dirty it is. Is there a way to force people to clean up? Residential and commercial garbage are put out any which way. Piles of garbage unbagged and untied. te wind blows it all oiver. People litter. They never sweep. It's not about fundraising - it's about enforcement. I have looked at houses for purchase and the taxes are just way too high. Does the city administration really believe people will pay that to live in a dump???
