Sidewalk Closure NEW
Beginning on Monday, October 27, 2014, a private contractor will be performing work at 801 W. Chisholm Street on the northeast corner of Ninth Avenue and Chisholm Street.
For the safety of the workmen and the public, the adjacent sidewalk and parking stalls will be closed during this work. Barricades and signage will be present to guide pedestrians around the work area.
This work is expected to last three days, unless construction or weather delays occur.
Leaf and Plant Material Reminder NEW
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 theright-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.......
