Leaf pick-up in full swing!

The city’s Street Maintenance Department has deployed its crews for Leaf Fest 2012. Crews started picking up leaves early this morning south of Sherman Avenue. They’ll work their way north until the program is completed, which is expected to be Dec. 1.

A few things to keep in mind if you haven’t yet raked your leaves into the street:

  • Leaves will be picked up only once, so please don’t put them in the street after crews have visited your area.
  • Leaves and pine needles should be raked about a foot away from the gutter or curb line to allow for water drainage.
  • Help the crews and don’t put out bagged leaves, branches, rubble or refuse.
