Post Office cleanup
The City of Plant City has closed on the former post office found on Reynolds Street in the heart of downtown Plant City. On Monday a general services crew began cleaning up the property and on Friday the city will conduct a full assessment to determine how to proceed with the long abandoned location.
City Manager Bill McDaniel said there will be cleanup all week with the nearby landscaping as the city improves the aesthetics for downtown while they finish the plans for the property.
Santa Sled helps hundreds
Each year the Des’ Aimes Social Club and Plant City Black Heritage host the Santa Sled Festival to help local families have a stress-free Christmas. The groups give out toys, bicycles, clothes and groceries for a complete Christmas dinner to participating families.
Thanks to many local sponsors and the generosity of the community the event was able to serve the hundreds of guests that flooded to Marie B. Ellis Park on Dec. 22.
