Mayor Jazmine Duncan, who was monitoring the traffic into the area, jokingly suggested rescheduling the event because it wasn’t a hot and windy day that usually accompanies the cleanup day. It was a relatively cool day with hardly any wind, and the use of the town’s water truck to wet down the area also helped to make it a more pleasant experience.
