TOWN OF SOUTHAMPTON
Adopt A Bus Shelter Program The Adopt a Bus Shelter Program (ABSP) offers civic-minded companies, individuals and organizations the opportunity to enhance their Town by “sponsoring” bus shelters to keep them litter-free. Enlisting in the ABSP is their way of saying they believe in creating a beautifully clean environment. That they are proud of their communities and they want a hand in shaping the image their community presents to visitors.
WHO CAN SPONSOR?
Any individual, business and organization (except for political candidates, political action committees and political campaigns) may become a Sponsor.
WHAT IS THE SPONSOR’S ROLE?
The sponsor directly hires the maintenance provider to maintain the appearance of the shelter from the list of available providers listed on the Town’s website at www.southamptontownny.gov. Shelter Maintenance entails removing the trash from the receptacle on a weekly basis and picking up liter that may be in and around the shelter. These providers have voluntarily enlisted themselves or their company for this program and meet the criteria the Town has set forth. The only involvement between the Town and Providers is compliance of the cleaning. The Town will designate a person or persons to oversee that this job is being done in a timely fashion and in conformance with the Town’s standards for cleaning. Sponsors wishing to sponsor a shelter must commit to a minimum of a one-year agreement with a Town approved Maintenance Providers.
Please Note: The Sponsor and Maintenance Provider can be one company/individual, if they chose to use their own people/staff to provide this service
WHAT IS THE TOWN’S ROLE?
The TOWN’S primary role is to ensure that the cleaning is done properly and will closely monitors the Maintenance Provider. The TOWN does not receive any type of direct compensation from the Sponsor or Maintenance Provider. The TOWN will post signs crediting the sponsor for its effort.
WHY IS SPONSORING ADVANTAGEOUS? The sponsor will receive recognition for their efforts in the form of a highly visible recognition sign. More importantly, the Sponsor will assist in beautifying their community.
