COLUMBIA, SC – City Center Partnership (CCP) is pleased to announce that the organization has been awarded a contract to provide its clean services to the Vista area.  

CCP’s services will be provided on a probationary basis for 90 days. Two part-time clean team ambassadors have been hired and will be responsible for cleaning a total of 22 blocks from Assembly to Huger between Lady and Senate. The hours of operation will be from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday, with the main focus on litter control, handbill removal, and small graffiti projects.
