At 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 15, your phone will ring. Mayor Gutierrez will be on the line leading a Telephone Town Hall Meeting , ready to answer your questions about City services and how we can work together to make MoVal an even better place to live, work, raise a family and retire.

Recycle Your Christmas Tree Through Jan. 8
Wait! Don't put that Christmas tree in the trash. Recycle it! Waste Management will convert your tree into useful mulch. Just remove everything from the branches, and any metal stands, and put your tree out next to your other bins for collection on your regular pickup day. Trees taller than six feet need to be cut in half. Flocked trees (sprayed with that white stuff) will be collected, but can't be recycled. Waste Management will pick up trees through January 8 (two weeks after Christmas).
