Gallatin Brings Back Beautification with Cleanup Event

First 100 Volunteers to Receive “Weird Head” Shirt

Gallatin – In 1979 Gallatin adopted an ordinance creating the City Beautiful Commission. Among their goals was to “promote public interest in the appearance of the city, plant trees, prevent fires, and protect songbirds.” Different administrations over the years have implemented their own versions of the initiative. In 2016 the Gallatin Beautiful Committee was formed and split into two subcommittees; one focused on litter and the other to recognize businesses for enhancing their properties. Both committees are driven by volunteers from city government, local businesses, and the general population.

“The strength of a community can be really demonstrated by how clean it is and how many residents and businesses take ownership of the city’s beautification.” said Mayor Paige Brown. “As the city grows, I’m hoping to see more community involvement in efforts like the one this weekend.”

This Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, the Gallatin Beautiful Committee is holding a cleanup effort at both Lock 4 Park and Woods Ferry Boat Access. The two cleanup sites were picked by asking the public for nominations on which sites needed it the most. After responses were tallied, Lock 4 Park and Woods Ferry Boat Access were chosen. The two sites have different needs and volunteers should consider where are able to help most.

Lock 4 Park – This Park at the end of Lock 4 Road would be the most suitable for volunteers of all ages. Trash can be easily recovered along the shoreline and park roads. For those with boots and higher physical ability, the hidden areas of shoreline require climbing in and around densely wooded areas. Pope John Paul’s Hockey Team, Scouts Pack 425 and Pack 426, and Vena Stuart Student Council have expressed interest in working at this site.

Woods Ferry Boat Access – This area is more of a challenge as it involves shoreline cleanup that is mostly accessible by water. The Gallatin Fire Department and TWRA’s boats will work the shoreline, and anyone with a kayak or canoe is encouraged to help.

Gallatin Beautiful acquired sponsors for the event. Servpro and Rogers Group Inc. paid for the “weird head” t-shirts for volunteers; Freedom Church paid for the banners for the signup areas; and the City of Gallatin’s Public Works, Fire, and Police Departments are providing volunteers and cleanup supplies. Pictured is the “weird head” shirt available to volunteers.
