Leaf and Limb Collection Update

Solid Waste crews are approximately one week behind with leaf and limb collection. Although it is not unusual to fall a few days behind this time of year due to the volume of leaves on the ground, equipment issues have worsened the problem.

To address ongoing issues with older equipment, Public Works purchased and received two new leaf machines this year. Unfortunately, both new machines have been out of service due to software issues that are currently being addressed by the manufacturer. Three of the four older machines have been down, but one was put back in service this week and the other two should be repaired within the next week or two.

Our crews will be working diligently to get caught up.
