"It is a challenge to offer the clean up program as a courtesy to our residents in a town as large as Hillsborough while still managing the costs of doing so," McCauley said. "We are able to continue to offer this free Service to our residents because of DPW'S diligent management of the program. Once again, we are grateful to them for their continued efforts."
