Mayor Thomas Koch announces the winners of the City’s 2019 “Neat Neighbors”, a program that aims to recognize those residents that maintain their yard and property in a manner consistent with the themes of a cleaner and greener Quincy.
The 30 winners were chosen at random from more than 150 nominations from throughout the city’s many neighborhoods. The winners had to meet the qualifications of maintaining their yard and property and the program does not do comparative judging. Winners will receive a $30 gift certificate from a local garden center to help with their continued efforts next year.
“I want to thank all of the residents who were nominated this season,” Koch said. “Most of our residents do a fantastic job in keeping up their properties. This is our way of saying thanks and hopefully encouraging more people to do the same. The city can plant flowers, trees, and make our public property look nice but we need the cooperation of our residents to truly maintain the beautiful character of our city’s great neighborhoods.”
