  1. The streets of Bloomfield are a disgrace. There is litter everywhere. When was the last ticket issued for littering? It’s almost a joke, right? No one cares. But this is a big quality of life issue. Litter-strewn streets turn prospective home buyers away from Bloomfield. How about issuing some tickets for chronically litter strewn properties?
