Councilwoman organizes cleanups throughout southern Queens


From Howard Beach, Ozone Park and Woodhaven, down through Broad Channel to the Rockaways, Councilwoman Joann Ariola has implemented an action plan to combat trash in all corners of her district.

Ariola secured $79,000 in additional funding to enhance services from Wildcat and its transitional work program for unemployed persons with criminal convictions.

“When I was elected, I promised to clean up District 32,” Ariola said. “My partnership with the Wildcats has allowed me to live up to that promise. We’ve deployed Wildcat members throughout the district, cleaning up hotspots and enhancing the quality of life for all our residents.”
