Mayor Madden: Earth Day Cleanup Informational Meeting Announced
TROY, NY – Mayor Madden today announced the City of Troy will hold an informational meeting for the Collar City’s annual Earth Day Cleanup event. The meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 26, in the Main Conference Room at City Hall (433 River Street). All interested residents and community members are invited to attend and provide information on neighborhood cleanup projects.
Mayor Madden said, “Getting involved with local Earth Day cleanup programs gives Troy residents an opportunity to make a direct impact on improving quality of life in their neighborhood.
