Today's rain showers has brought one consequence with it:  The Clean Sweep event that was scheduled for downtown Duluth has been rescheduled to tomorrow - April 19.

The annual event is sponsored by the Greater Downtown Council and is always scheduled during Earth Week.  The day-long focused clean up is billed as a great opportunity for business owners and residents in the downtown area to clean up the debris left from winter and put a fresh face on their property just in time for the warmer spring weather.  With city street sweeping machinery out, owners are encouraged to sweep the debris from their front sidewalk areas over the curb and into the street for pickup.

The rescheduled Clean Sweep effort will happen on Wednesday between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM.
