Wind Storm Clean Up

City public works crews are working actively to cleanup trees, limbs, and other debris following the windstorm event of 07/29/2023.

Our first priority is getting streets re-opened and coordinating with utility companies on road closings in areas of down lines. We will then focus on assisting residents with hauling-off of limbs and brush.

We will start hauling piles that are placed out along the edge of City streets by the middle of this week.

Residents will have until next Wed. Aug. 9 to place debris along the streets. After that date, residents will need to make their own arrangements for hauling and disposal. When placing piles, please avoid blocking sidewalks, fire hydrants, storm sewer inlets, and culvert openings.

We will also run street sweepers over the next several days, to handle the smaller debris. For residents that have already loaded their own debris pile, you will be allowed to dump limbs/tree debris directly at the City burn pit site at East Spruce Street/Cherry Lane, just outside of town – the gate will be open daily thru Aug. 9 for dumping.

Thanks for your cooperation and patience as we work together to get the City cleaned-up.
