MOULTRIE — The Moultrie City Council is encouraging citizens to take pride in Moultrie in April by cleaning up around their homes and lots.

The council approved resolutions to designate the week of April 20 through April 26 as both Georgia Cities Week and Spring Cleanup Week. Both designations are meant to help residents take pride in the City of Moultrie and keep it clean and beautiful.

In previous years, the annual Spring Cleanup Week has been a time for citizens to clean up and get rid of old items. Trash collections will be available throughout the week to pick up a variety of items no longer needed, including the big and bulky items not normally allowed for pickup.

Residents will also be encouraged to take part in large-scale cleanup efforts throughout the city. This year’s efforts have been enhanced by efforts of the city’s Nuisance Abatement Team, who have worked to clear away old, junk cars and dilapidated housing.

Other issues brought before the council included:

• Holding a third and final reading and amending the zoning, substandard lots use and appeals fees city ordinances;

• Purchasing a refurbished five-gang reel mower for use on the recreational ball fields, and

• Interim City Manager Tom Berry requested an executive session to discuss personnel matters. No formal decision was made following the session.
