• Vacuum Leaf Collection Program – Dec 18

    Both City and contractor crews have been working hard all week trying to collect as many leaves as they can. Crews have completed all YELLOW zones and are currently working in the BLUE zones. We are approximately 50% complete in our BLUE zones and based on the pace of the operation, we hope to complete by the end of the week weather permitting. The GREEN zones will commence after that. The yards are working collaboratively to complete the areas as efficiently as possible.

    Temperatures are dropping severely Wednesday into Thursday and then warming back up for the weekend. With this, crews will not be working on the VLCP tomorrow. Our City trucks will be converted back over for winter operations by the end of the week ensuring we are ready for any snow related events.

    Our contractors will continue working Friday and until at least Monday. Our contractors have committed to assist with the VLCP into next year, weather permitting.

    I know many of you took advantage of the extended yard waste pick up this past week.

    Again, we appreciate your patience as we work through the vacuum leaf pick up challenges this year.
