The biggest being the COVI D-19 crisis. Great care was taken for the safety of our employees and of the public. Some activities, such as community cleanups, were eliminated until the City moves into higher phases in accordance with the WA Safe Start Plan. In addition, the filling of vacant positions identified for the program were deliberately delayed due to the unknown effects COVI D-19 may have on the anticipated revenue generated to fund the Clean City program from the commercial waste customers. In all, positions were filled and the program accomplished a significant amount of success in providing timely responses to many incidents of blight within the City of Yakima.
