ANTIOCH -- A neighborhood cleanup will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday near one of the city's oldest parks.
Those interested should meet at Prosserville Park, located at Sixth and O streets. The targeted cleanup area is within walking distance.
Volunteers will receive instructions at the site and cleanup equipment if necessary, Antioch police Capt. Steve McConnell said.
Police will facilitate the event but are not assigned to help because of staffing cuts. Other groups involved include the department's crime prevention commission, Volunteers in Police Service and residents.
Neighborhood cleanups are scheduled for the first Saturday of each month, weather permitting.
For more information or suggestions for future cleanup areas, call 925-779-6878.
