The task on top-of-mind for Tuesday's Fresh Holes Road neighborhood clean-up was trash removal. Barnstable Police Chief Paul MacDonald said two teams of inmates from the Sheriff's office were helping the Department of Public Works clean up trash in the neighborhood.
By 9:30 a.m., the teams had made it more than halfway through the Fresh Holes Road neighborhood and planned on moving on to the Quaker Road neighborhood after.
In a meeting on Monday, Town Manager John Klimm said a video surveillance system was purchased and set to be installed in the Fresh Holes Road neighborhood next month. The town also is looking into lighting, plans on meeting with landlords and hopes to get on the next homeowner's association meeting.
A few residents came to their doors to look outside and see what was going on. A woman stood in the door of 42 Fresh Holes Rd. looking out at police and clean-up crews.
When asked if there had been any community involvement or residents interested in helping with the clean-up, Chief MacDonald did not say anything.
The murder of 31-year-old Todd Lampley on Feb. 27 is still under investigation.
