Leaf Collection program begins on November 3, 2014:
This year's leaf pickup program begins on Monday, November 3, 2014 and ends on January 2, 2015. Residents are asked to refrain from placing leaves in the City street/gutters before November 3, as street sweepers cannot handle the amount of leaves if left in the street before the pickup program begins. The curbside leaf collection program is only available to single-family residences or properties with 3 units or less. For more information regarding the City's residential leaf pickup program and the alternative commercial landscaper/property owner program can be obtained at 894-4200 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday or questions can be directed to Public Works Operations and Maintenance at 894-4200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
