Sprucing up Pocomoke to rid the town of trash and debris is the aim of a new effort initiated by Mayor Bruce Morrison earlier this month.
“It doesn’t look very good and the town is really getting in bad shape,” he said. “Even the residents of Pocomoke have come to me and they want me to do something. They’re saying. ‘Bruce it’s time we get this town cleaned up.’”
Morrison said a small committee was formed after strategizing with city department heads. They have been tasked with improving the town’s unkempt appearance and instilling a renewed sense of pride in Pocomoke.
“Let’s get this town cleaned up and do whatever option we can,” he said. “Let’s start with the downtown and work our way through it.”
