A big THANK YOU to the unknown individual or group that recently cleaned up the ramp area from Route 11 to Cedarhurst Road near Route 81, Exit 1. The area was so littered with debris and garbage that it was unsightly! Your efforts have not gone unnoticed and are certainly appreciated! If anyone knows who is responsible for such a nice community project, please contact the Kirkwood Town Clerk's Office at 775-1966. Also, the addition of signs encouraging everyone to stop littering are a nice touch!
The Town of Kirkwood requires that all peddlers and solicitors obtain a license at the Town Clerk's Office.
