On Saturday, for the 11th year, families and scout groups came to the Brentwood Public Works garage to apply a personal touch to 35 city trash cans.
The city supplied the white cans, a variety of paint colors, and candy to keep the workers happy. Look for the finished product around the city.

Mayor Mark Kurtz started the tradition, public works supintendent Jim Nahmensen said. The cans are donated each year by Brentwood business, Ice Cream Specialties.
The Brentwood Daisy Troop 1496 from McGrath Elementary School, Girl Scout Troop 126 and Webelos Pack 655 were there to paint.
