NYPD Distributing the Following Leaflets

NOTICE OF CLEANING AND UPKEEP OPERATIONS TO COMMENCE FRIDAY OCTOBER 14, 2011

To Whom It May Concern:
Please be advised that we will be conducting deferred cleaning and maintenance in Zuccotti Park on Friday, October 14th. In the past three weeks we have been unable to perform our normal daily upkeep operations. As a result, and particularly because of the heavy and continuous park usage during this time, conditions in the Park have deteriorated presenting health and cleanliness issues which must be addressed.

We intend to proceed to clean the Park in sections so that one-third of the Park will be cleaned at a time while the remaining portions of the Park can continue to be used. Cleaning operations will commence on the western portion (Church Street) of the Park at 7:00 AM, and Brookfield representatives will be in the Park to delineate each of the areas being cleaned. It will be necessary for the public to leave the portion of the Park being cleaned while cleaning operations are underway, and to remove any possessions from the area being cleaned. Any possessions left in an area when it is ready to be cleaned will be considered to have been left there because they have been abandoned and they will be disposed of accordingly.

We anticipate that it will take approximately 4 hours to clean each section of the Park. Once a section has been cleaned, it will be re-opened to the public for lawful use consistent with our regulations. For your information, a copy of Brookfield’s regulations governing the use of the Park is attached to this Notice.

    I posted two calls for support/action that are out on FB to the library’s facebook page. The cleanup tonight, and the defense tomorrow. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Occupy-Wall-Street-Library

  3. Thanks Michael–it’s a little hectic today. PR/press has issued a wonderful call for support for tomorrow morning that was read in an afternoon GA today–could you try to get in touch with them & post that on our site as well? Maybe they already have it up on the GA site. I’m going to be away from computer/phone for awhile.
