New Richmond officials rally to pick up litter
Call them the Java & Trash Squad.
New Richmond Mayor Fred Horne and City Administrator Mike Darrow gathered at 6:45 a.m. Thursday at Jet's Coffee Bistro downtown to begin a new weekly effort in the city.
The city officials begin with a cup of coffee and a breakfast snack, then they gather up trash bags and gloves and head to the sidewalks and streets. They spend about a half an hour picking up garbage, cigarette butts and more.
