Washington City: Main
The Washington City adopt your city program was developed to give citizens the opportunity to provide service to the community in which they live, by performing tasks that will beautify and maintain the City. It is a two-year voluntary commitment to clean up litter or perform other service in one of the predetermined locations a minimum of three times per year. To recognize the groups efforts Washington City erects a sign on the location with the groups name. Please contact the Public Works representative at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
