    Now watch, the city will mis-use this ranking to give out more sanitation summonses instead of hiring more street sweepers.

    Another tax coming down–dirty street tax.. but I have seen enough to know in this neighborhood people just do not give a =====about how things, look, safety and health through non-littering. They just throw it out there and that is it because someone else can take care of the issue.

      How about those who put challah out on the sidewalk thinking they are feeding the birds and attracting rats instead, I would like to see them getting tickets, and those who leave their garbage in front of other buildings because they have to walk round to the back of their homes to put out their garbage, at least they can follow the rules and leaves things tidy.
