With much anticipation, our Police and Fire Department buildings renovation project is near completion. The Police Department will be moving back into their department next week, with the Fire Department following suit the week after. As mentioned last month, the city will be hosting an Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Friday, December 1, 2023, to showcase the renovation of this building. Full details will be shared in the near future on our city website, Facebook page, and the November edition of my e-newsletter.
Falling leaves mean our Service Department is actively collecting leaves throughout our city. As a reminder, please do not place leaves in the street. Leaves placed in the street can be hazardous to motorists, block drains, and become wet and matted after a rain, which slows the collection process. Residents should only pile leaves on the tree lawn. Please be patient as a full leaf collection cycle in our city takes approximately 14 days.
Our final Shred Day of the year will take place on Saturday, October 28th from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Service Department. Please refer to the Service Department section of this E-Newsletter for details.
