Making a clean sweep of it

The Public Works Department has obtained a new street sweeper for use on St. Thomas. “The street sweeper compacts dirt and debris, and uses vacuum technology to clear roadways,” said Public Works Commissioner Derek Gabriel. “It also works to keep waste from entering our drainage systems, which is critical to long-term street maintenance.” Drivers will see the street sweeper operating between 4 a.m. and noon. Public Works is also working to identify funds to purchase additional street sweepers for all three islands.
