> Thank you for reporting the issue to me. I have spoken with Erica yesterday, and she will make sure that surrounding areas at Peet's are free of litter, particularly cigarette butts. I will also contact regional office of Safeway so they assign someone to ensure that the shopping complex is clean every single day.

> The area outside of Peets on Middle Ave is littered with cigarette butts. Since the "new" Safeway opened in 2007, this area has been used as a smoking area, most likely by employees from Safeway and other businesses in the complex. I have previously complained about the cigarette butts left behind but the problem persists. Smoking in this area almost certainly violates Menlo Park's smoking ordinance. Smoking and the associated litter should also violate Safeway's use permit. I urge the City, Safeway, and Peets to address this problem asap.
