I know you've seen them out there, keeping the streets of SD clean. How can I get them to come down my street? How much do they get paid? Are they a recent phenomenom? Are they convicts on work release? or Welfare recipients on Workfare? Maybe Community service for petty crimes?

They get paid for it. That's their uniform.

They only clean avenues and important streets. I see them everyday on Romulo Betancourt, Sarasota and Enriquillo, they don't come in in neighborhood streets. You are responsible for sweeping the sidewalk in front of your house and keeping it clean. The dude that works here washes it every morning, do the same. :classic:

Yes, of course. My Haitian Dude keeps our apartment sidewalk spotless too. But what about all of the other buildings on our street that don't seem to care as much? Do the police (or the Dept. Of Health, if one exists?) ever ticket a building owner for failure to clean the sidewalk?

Good one :nervous: !!
This is the Dominican Republic you are talking about, not some overregulated country like Switzerland.

Back in NYC, the Health Department Inspector gets the best tips (bribes). Now that's the kind of regulation they might really appreciate down here. ;)

I'll be darned! My street is right behind a main avenue that gets cleaned daily and nobody comes to sweep clean our street. :cross-eye

Anyways, kudos to Roberto for a job well-done (so far, so good).
