Fall leaf pickup
Oct. 8—Nov. 30
Residents may place leaves at the streets edge for the city to pick up. Placement of leaf piles at the streets edge can only occur during this time frame. The leaf piles need to be within 3-feet of the edge of the road for the vacuums to reach.
Leaf piles cannot be placed near utility poles, guy wires, hydrants, mailboxes or other obstructions. The leaves need to be placed close to the edge of the road, but cannot block storm drains which can cause flooding.
On Monday of each week during this time frame the City will begin on the main streets and then move onto the side streets throughout the week.
•The City is not picking up brush during the Fall Leaf pickup. Leaf piles with brush mixed in will not be picked up. A drop off site for brush is at the Department of Public Works, 691 Airway Drive.
