In response to the Sept. 25 letter “Clean up Modesto”: I agree with you 100 percent. The whole city needs a good cleaning up. Alleys smell so bad. When we had a car show down on 10th Street this year, it stunk so bad.
Also, “clean up Modesto” means to me to clean up the county areas, too. Our alleys are so filled with garbage that not even an emergency vehicle or utility truck can drive down them. We find that some people will clean out a house for the landlord for cash. Then they don’t take it to the landfill and instead drive down our alleys and dump it.
