Operation: Clean Sweep Update

The city of Amarillo's Operation: Clean Sweep is almost over and city officials say that they have inspected over 70,000 or nearly 90,000 homes inside the city.

The city says over 5,000 letters have been sent to people with code violations. Of that number, over 3,000 have cleaned up the problem.

We're told private contractors have been hired by the city to clean up around 400 homes with violations...with a charge to the homeowner.
