Bellaire holding first of what officials hope is multiple cleanup days

Dick Flanagan, acting police chief and part-time code enforcer, says next month's cleanup -- slated for April 21 -- is hopefully the first of three for residents.

With spring just around the bend, the village of Bellaire is offering a free town cleanup day that officials are hoping is a big success.

Dick Flanagan, acting police chief and part-time code enforcer, says next month's cleanup -- slated for April 21 -- is hopefully the first of three for residents.

"This hopefully will be a jumpstart for people to get their properties cleaned up before summer gets here," Flanagan said.

Everything, including electronics, will be accepted, with the exception of hazardous materials.

"Since we raised the garbage (rates by more than $3), we're giving back to the community to have a cleanup, so it is free," he said.

Flanagan recently condemned four houses in his role as code enforcer as part of a promise to take action.

"A lot of the problem is, some of these houses, the parents had died. It wasn't probated. That makes it harder,” Flanagan said. “It's harder on me to track down the people."

The cleanup will run from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. in the marina parking lot.
