The city of Easley’s Beautification Committee was reconstituted almost a year ago by Mayor Womack.
He tapped several residents and business owners of Easley to help with various beautification campaigns around town. Ashley Corso, the owner of The Pint Station in downtown Easley is currently the chair of the committee.
The committee partners with the city Parks & Recreation and City Works departments to advise and coordinate local improvement projects.
These Easley beautification projects include:
- Building facade improvements
- Flowers and planters around the city
- A litter pickup campaign.
Sue Petkus, a retired resident who moved here from Chicago four and a half years ago, heads up the monthly community litter sweep with Willa Gleason, who is on staff at the Easley High School Career Center.
Volunteers pick up supplies at a designated meeting location and pick up litter along specific roads for 2 hours.
The committee works with the Director of Parks & Rec Christman Short to execute the campaigns.
The city provides tents, tables, signs, and trash collections after the litter cleanup events. Many of the supplies like grabbing sticks, vests, trash bags, and gloves were provided by Palmetto Pride. Palmetto Pride is South Carolina’s anti-litter organization whose primary mission is to keep the state clean.
The November pickup is on the 19th along Fleetwood Drive.
