Planned improvements include removing litter and debris from three creeks, litter pick up in surrounding neighborhood streets and sidewalks, and removing litter and debris in the creek area near Marietta Power.
“The city is grateful for their work to improve and beautify our city. The giving of their congregation’s time and efforts is a mission that benefits the citizens of our city,” said Mayor Steve Tumlin. “Keep Marietta Beautiful appreciates the Church’s involvement in the ‘Great American Clean-up’ and hopes that the public realizes the value of cleaning our creeks. Eventually this water ends up in the Chattahoochee.”
The groups will meet at Custer Park on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and be welcomed by Mayor Pro-Tem Johnny Walker, City Council member Michelle Kelly-Cooper, County Commissioner JoAnn Birrell and County Commission candidate Scott Tucker. After a warm welcome, the groups will head out to various sections in the Sope Creek basin to make a difference in Marietta.
