Spring Clean-up

Depending on the winter snowfall, Spring clean-up is Sweepernormally from April 1 to April 30. Streets sweeps up scoria that residents have raked out onto the asphalt shoulders of the roads. All commercial contractors and property management companies who provide this service must remove the materials themselves for disposal. Please do not take advantage of this small service by having large piles in the streets for pick up. All branches that have been trimmed or trees that have been cut down, as well as other debris, must be hauled away by the resident or contractor.

A call to the Public Works Shop at 879-1807 will help in knowing where pickup is needed. Questions about this service should be directed to Street Superintendent, David Van Winkle or Street Supervisor, Tom Martindale at the Public Works Shop.
