Utica, NY (WIBX) - The Boilermaker "home stretch" is getting the white glove treatment on Thursday.

Mayor Palmieri's 14th Quality of Life Sweep will meet at the intersection of Whitesboro and Kellogg at noon and travel down to the Boilermaker Finish Line.

City employees participating in the sweep are dressing down so that they can get down and dirty, to clean and paint in preparation for Sunday's big race.
