In a continuing effort to clean-up hamlets across Brookhaven as a part of its Quality of Life Task Force, Supervisor Mark Lesko and Councilman Steve Fiore-Rosenfeld announced that Port Jefferson Station will be the subject of the fifth Operation Clean Sweep.
According to a statement, Operation Clean Sweep is coordinated program to improve quality of life throughout the Town.
"Operation Clean Sweep is another step in the right direction to help Brookhaven residents to take back their own communities to protect their quality of life - in this case in a section of Port Jefferson Station," said Fiore-Rosenfeld during the press conference.
The program coordinates various Brookhavent Town departments to fix streetlamps, pick up litter, install new street signs and other activities to help clean up the neighborhood.
The area targeted by Operation Clean Sweep in Port Jefferson Station is bordered on the north by Susan Road and Clinton Avenue, the east by Bicycle Path and on the west by Old Town Road and Terryville Road. Results will be announced in the coming weeks.
The Quality of Life Task Force was formed to enforce the Town code, eliminate blight in neighborhoods, shutdown suburban slumlords, and prosecute serial offenders.
Supervisor Lesko said that Operation Clean Sweep takes the program to "the next level by targeting specific neighborhoods and helping to improve the quality of life of the residents who live there."
Four Operation Clean Sweeps have already taken place in Selden, , Mastic and .
