If you reside in Clinton and have piles of brush or leaves still lingering at the curbside, those will need to be taken care of or you may get ticketed.
City Administrator Tim Followell says the Street Department is cracking down on those piles as we head to the winter months when city crews begin to shift their focus elsewhere. If you transfer those piles to biodegradable bags, City Crews will pick that up for you in that circumstance.
Followell reminds residents the yard waste facility is still open Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays if you need to get brush picked up. He adds right now, warnings are just being issued but those could turn into warnings down the road.
The City Council Monday night approved services to get the brush at the yard waste facility disposed of and Commissioner Ken Buchanan suggested perhaps burning of that material outside of town. Followell says that have to result in either a new site for the brush or transporting it and weighing costs. He says right now it is just in the exploration phase.
Also Monday night at the Clinton City Council meeting, the Council put on file bids for work on the stairs at the Clinton Fire Station. Those will be acted on just on the other side of the first of the year.
