This significant amount of cash will be invested in street cleaning, new litter bins and street furniture. The outlay is in addition to that already put into a new wheelie bin refuse and recycling collection and a new grounds maintenance and street cleansing contract.
Of the expenditure, £40,000 will be directed towards new rapid response team the Streets Ahead Squad which will be deployed to clean known problem areas.
Its main role will be to dig out and edge footpaths, clear littering and remove illegal dumping while it will also be called upon to tackle public areas where responsibility cannot be traced.
A further sum of £10,000 has been allocated for new bins in the city centre while an extra £60,000 will be spent on litterbins for local neighbourhoods.
City of Lincoln Council director of resources Philip Wright said: This is a really exciting initiative by the council. We know from consultations with the public that people do want us to give priority to keeping the city looking clean and tidy.
Improving the street scene in this substantial way helps people take pride in their communities and improves the quality of life in the city.
While furniture will also be replaced and removed, the fund will see the whole city given a facelift.
This even extends to removing chewing gum stains from a total area of 22,000 metres squared.
