The fall leaf clean-up season is in full swing and Farmer City is highlighting the options for its residents.
On the WHOW Morning Show Tuesday, Farmer City Manager Sue McLaughlin told Regional Radio they have a two-week window that is open now where there is curbside leaf cleanup for free.
McLaughlin says while some may not like the permitting of leaf burning, it is limited in when residents can burn and gives the option to deal with leaves.
McLaughlin encourages Farmer City residents to avoid getting leaves close to the catch basin as it blocks the water flow.
While many communities have yard waste facilities made available to their residents, McLaughlin indicates in exploring that option for Farmer City, they've encountered too many issues. For instance, they don't have a lot of property available to have such a place, and disposal of the yard waste would also be a challenge.
