Clean the Street for Little Feet



Decatur City Schools are back in session and thousands of children will be walking and biking to school. Please make sure the sidewalk in front of your property is cleared of debris and that the bushes are cut back for a clear sight line. Make sure cars can see the children approaching cross streets on their walk or bike ride to school.

Be sure to drive slowly and be on the lookout for both pedestrians and cyclists.
