PRIDE will help bankroll Spring Cleanup in Floyd Co.
PRIDE will reimburse Floyd County, Prestonsburg, Allen, Martin, Wayland and Wheelwright up to $7,250 for leading the local PRIDE Spring Cleanup Month in April.
Floyd County itself is eligible for $6,000, while the cities of Prestonsburg, Allen, Martin, Wayland and Wheelwright are eligible for $250 each. The funding levels are based on the number of road miles in the county and cities.
The PRIDE funds will offset costs to the county and cities for removing litter and dumps and for offering free trash drop-off events. The funds also may help communities clean up debris from recent storms. PRIDE will also give the county and cities T-shirts and cleanup supplies to distribute to Spring Cleanup volunteers.
