Officials look to tackle step-street cleanup confusion
Some Bronx residents say they are confused as to whose job it is to clean step-streets in the borough.
Laura Spalter, from the Environment and Sanitation Committee of Community Board 8, tells News 12 that for the past few months she's had a pile of complaints about three step-streets being littered with trash in Van Cortland Village, Summit Place and Kingsbridge Heights.
The New York City Department of Transportation tells News 12 that the Department of Sanitation is responsible for cleaning those step-streets.
Spalter says she wants a consistent schedule put in place all year to clean the streets.
Councilmember Andrew Cohen is applauding the community board's efforts and looks forward to working with them on further improvements.
