MANSFIELD, OH - Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker has announced that the City of Mansfield and Downtown Mansfield Inc. have decleared May 21st, 2019 as Operation Sweep.

"Downtown Mansfield, Inc. is excited to continue our partnership with the City of Mansfield in our joint efforts to beautify and clean our community."

"This project is instrumental in encouraging others to be a part of Planting Pride, Not Litter in our city, and perfect for visitors who come to the many activities in the downtown area throughout the year. We hope you join us for this 23rd anniversary clean up event."
