IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS

  •  

LEAF PICKUP WILL END WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 2022. PLEASE HAVE ALL LEAF PILES PLACED WITHIN 6 FEET OF THE CURB BUT NOT ON THE SIDEWALK AND NOT IN THE STREET BY TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2022.

AN ADDITIONAL SPRING CLEANUP WILL TAKE PLACE IN APRIL OR MAY OF 2023.

 

NOTICE TO ALL BOROUGH RESIDENTS:

Please do not approach the Leaf Vac Truck. It has recently been brought to our attention that some individuals are rushing to put more leaves out when they see the leaf truck coming, and in the process are becoming a hazard to the driver and to the operation of the truck, as well as putting themselves in harm’s way. Public Works makes several passes around town every week. There is no need to rush to put out leaves if you see the leaf truck coming. It will be around again.

Also, please put leaf piles WITHIN six (6) feet of the curb but NOT ON THE STREET OR SIDEWALK.

Thank you for your cooperation to help make leaf pickup as efficient as possible.
