It's about time for City Public Works crews to hit the neighborhoods in an effort to get the falling leaves picked up.
Public Works Director Steve Lobb indicates the conditions are taking shape for their crews to start dedicating most of their time to this effort.
When it gets into the thickest of the cleanup efforts, it could take almost an entire day to get through one of the five zones in the community. Lobb also notes the weather can slow them down when it consistently rains.
Lobb says when you get the leaves to the edge of the curb, his crews will be by within a week to get those, provided the weather cooperates. He notes they use primarily two crews but if things become too much, he has on occasion, turned to a third crew to provide support.
Lobb adds the community yard waste facility is now open all day Saturdays and Tuesday and Thursdays.
