Leaf and Plant Material Reminder
The City reminds owners or occupants of any premise, that pushing, placing, or depositing any weeds, plant material, grass, leaves, or vegetation from any private or public land into the right-of-way of any street, alley, or highway within the City is a violation of City Ordinance 102-71.
This time of year many residents and businesses within the City take the time to rake leaves and pull dead or dying plants from their property. This material cannot be raked or deposited in the right-of-way of any street or alley. The City street sweepers cannot handle the volumes that get deposited in the street curb line, delaying sweeping activities. The leaves also causes clogging of catch basins, leading to the possibility of flooding during a thaw. Click here to read more.......
