Public Works Update
  • Leaf collection (Central area) – this service has been completed. The regular schedule for the service called for a third round collection in the week starting after the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday on January 20 but multiple winter weather events and the required response delayed the scheduled completion. The next scheduled service is the Spring Leaf Collection to begin in the Central area on Monday, March 2 for a single round across University City’s service area for this work. If our residents have any specific questions about this service, please contact the department office.
