(I can’t take credit for that headline, that’s pure Dan Smith but it was too good not to use). Cigarette butts beware: After about a year Main Street Kent proudly rolled out it’s new-old sweeper for downtown Kent last week. That giant sucking sound you hear may indeed be Dan Smith but this time it’s as he takes his turn driving the sweeper to clean up downtown Kent’s sidewalks. Getting this street sweeper was one of those great opportunity stories that was too good to pass up.
The Main Street Kent folks heard that Kent State was putting an old sweeper that they had used around campus to suck up loose litter and debris out to pasture. But in Brett Favre form, this sweeper wanted to come back out of retirement and after a thorough once-over the Main Street folks agreed it was worth a chance.
Main Street was able to pick up the sweeper at a great price off the waiver wire from Kent State and they’ve already put it in the game to make downtown Kent as clean and inviting as possible for residents and visitors.
So yes, Main Street Sucks and they’re proud of it.
