Taylorsville will tackle its biggest service event ever on Saturday with a citywide clean-up. City leaders estimate that more than 800 volunteers will help spruce up parks, trails, streets and neighborhoods.

Civic groups, churches, groups, businesses and individuals will take part in the project. Girl Scout Troop 2532, which got help from the city after its cookie money was stolen, is participating.
