TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett spent his day today doing manual labor. News 10 caught him at 13th and Wabash with a leaf blower.
Bennett says this is a typical work day in the city. His goal is to make the downtown area look a little bit better.
And he says it wouldn't be possible without volunteer help.
"Ya know the downtown area there's a lot of volunteers that want to take care of basically between Ninth and 3rd, and not as many volunteers out on this east end so we're doing 14th to the railroad tracks to try to make it look a little bit better," said Bennett.
Bennett said the weather stayed nice enough that he and his volunteers got out to do some work.
