Leaf Disposal:

Beginning Saturday Oct 15, 2016, residents of the City may begin disposing of leaves at a designated area in the City’s Memorial Park.  Signs will direct users to the designated area that will be open from 8:00AM to 2:30PM Mondays through Fridays and 9:00AM to 5:00PM on weekends and holidays.  The area is scheduled to be open through the month of November.  Only the designated area may be used for leaf disposal. 

Leaves will be added to an existing compost area and must be removed from plastic bags.  No materials used to carry the leaves are to be left at the leaf drop area.  The area is to be used for disposal of leaves only.  Dumping of brush, rubbish, and garbage is prohibited.
