Lynda Bettencourt: City paying attention to its GoModesto app; it worked for me

Kudos to the writer of “Pay homeless to spruce up exits” (Letters, Nov. 13) regarding a problem of trash in and around our city. It is so very sad to see. All up and down Briggsmore Avenue it appears to be a dumping ground, and is turning into a landfill. I sent an email through the GoModesto app, and within a week city of Modesto crews were out cleaning up the trash.

I encourage concerned citizens to also contact Michelle Beck (code enforcement officer) and report illegal dumping on city streets. Working together is the only way to clean up Modesto. Better yet, take your trash home and put it in your trash can. Problem solved.
