ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A “real pretty face” is what St. Louis should have as it hosts the Major League Baseball postseason, according to the city’s Streets Director.

Director Todd Walterman is directing crews to paint crosswalks, patch potholes, pick up litter, and trim trees ahead of Thursday’s first game between the Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates.

He views it as a challenge, not a task.

“When these times come along it’s time to say ‘hey, what are we doing? what are we doing right, what are we doing wrong, is there anything we can do better?’” Walterman said.

The preparation is important, and so is the cleanup.

“We’ll bring additional people in at night to do this cleanup or dump these cans, an extra sweeper here or there. It’s a small price to pay to put a real pretty face out there,” Walterman added. “I think the whole world will be looking at us here in a few weeks when we’re in the World Series.”

The good news, Walterman says, is that he and the city have done this before.
