Lancaster is offering individuals, businesses, organizations, and public agencies the opportunity to adopt a section of roadway through the city’s new TIDE-Y Up A Mile program.
Through the program, participants can adopt a roughly one-mile-long section of road to beautify and keep litter-free for two years. Participants will also receive recognition at a City Council meeting and have a sign installed at the location of the adopted roadway section.
“The TIDE-Y Up A Mile program is a win-win for the community and those involved. Not only will this program recognize participants for their clean-up efforts, but it also brings more awareness to the impacts of litter and trash – building community pride around a beautiful Lancaster,” said Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris.
“We are excited to engage our community to create a better tomorrow together with the TIDE-Y Up A Mile program,” said Lancaster Vice Mayor Marvin Crist. “We look forward to making Lancaster a nicer place for everyone and bringing attention to the key volunteers that are making it happen.”
The adoption period for a section of roadway is two years. For more information on the TIDE-Y Up A Mile program and the application process, visit: www.cityoflancasterca.org/tideyup.

What’s with the name on this program? Did the city get a sponsorship deal with the detergent manufacturer? Did they make a contribution to Wrecks’ PAC? Or did they just slip him a straight cash payoff?

A good place to start would be Lancaster City Hall. Clean out Rex and his hand picked cronies and bring some leadership that won’t cost the taxpayers millions of dollars in lawsuits, boondoggles, and no bid projects.

Tide won’t do it. You’ll need plenty of bleach, Pine-sol and industrial strength disinfectant..

I suggest a fumigation tent as a first step.

I thought Lancaster was the dump.
