Service area crews collect brush and other household yard waste every other week from March to October. Place brush in 6’x6’x6′ pile. Keep separate from other trash and place within 5 feet of the street.
Leaf collection runs November-February. Rake leaves into rows at the edge of the street in an unobstructed area for easy collection. Leaves raked to the alley are collected last. Leaves are collected separately from garbage and recycled into mulch. Plastic bags used to hold leaves compromise the mulching process so all leaves should be loose.
Christmas Tree Collection:
Christmas tree collection in the City is the same process as for brush collection. After all decorations have been removed, trees should be placed at the street for collection.
Parking is permitted on the street and on driveways. Parking vehicles on lawns or in a way that blocks the sidewalk is a codes violation.
Residents of our neighborhood vote at the O’Conner Senior Center. If you need to update your address prior to voting, the voter registration application also serves as a name and/or address change request.
Neighborhood Codes Enforcement:
If talking with a neighbor or landowner has not proved sufficient, codes violations should be called into 311 instead of using emergency numbers. Read more here on frequently asked questions.
