Wind Storms

City public works crews work actively to cleanup trees, limbs, and other debris following windstorm events. Our first priority is getting streets re-opened and coordinating with utility companies on road closings in areas of down lines.

We then focus on assisting residents with hauling-off of limbs and brush. We typically start by hauling piles that are placed out along the edge of City streets the week following the windstorm. Residents are given several days to place debris along the streets.

After the end-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 also run street sweepers for several days following windstorms, to handle the smaller debris. 

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