Keep leaves inside curb line

Published Dec 5, 2018 at 4:00pm

A final word on leaf collection? Fault on both sides. The city can’t wait for some certain date to collect leaves, when they are piled up for days, harvest them instead of waiting for them to blow around or some rain or snow.

Citizens should not ignore city’s request to keep leaves on their lot inside of curb line. For some reason every year many ignore that published request to avoid clogging street and sewers. City has to issue warnings followed by a fine if leaves not brought back off street.

Driving through the city finds many ignoring city’s request. Good source of income for city?
