The seemingly never ending fall clean up battle is underway in central Illinois, which means Clinton City Streets Crews are out for the annual fall clean up efforts.
Crews will scour the city little by little each week until almost all areas are clear of leaves. Before the Clinton City Council Monday night, Steve Lobb, Public Works Director for the City of Clinton encourages residents to leave their leaves out at the curb and they will get to them.
Lobb indicates they break the city down into five zones and will hit each zone in a week.
Lobb indicates last year's clean up never took more than a week to get through the entire town.
He notes they have a couple extra staffers hired for the month as they will soon be decorating for the Christmas season.
