There is a problem with grass and leaves being blown into the street. This is illegal and plugs up the drains. Please refrain from doing this in the future.
Burn Pile - There is a burn pile located in the boat ramp parking area. This is for “brush and trees” only. We have a problem with people dumping items with nails at this location. This causes flat tires on the loader when we clean up the ashes. If this practice continues, the city will consider eliminating this all together. A place to dispose of brush and trees is a valuable asset to our residents. Please don’t abuse it!
Leaf Pick-up will be the same procedure as last year. Leaves should be placed by the side of the road in clear bags only and will be picked up on Monday and Tuesday mornings only. The city has a compost pile located in the northwest corner of the boat ramp parking area. Any resident who wants to dispose of their own leaves or grass may do so but all items must be removed from the bags. Leaves will be picked up through the months ofOCTOBER and NOVEMBER only.
Winter weather will be quickly upon us and to make our job easier and more efficient we would appreciate residents cooperation in not parking on side streets when there is any measurable snow fall. In addition, there is no parking of vehicles or trailers of any kind at the end of streets with no outlets.
