Fall street sweeping

Street Sweeping

Public Works begins the annual fall street sweeping process.

Residents are reminded to observe temporary no parking signs to allow sweeping of parking and gutter areas.

As a reminder, please do not blow or rake leaves into the City's streets or gutters as this is a violation of the City's Storm water Ordinance (Chapter 104, Article III, Section 104-34(a) (5). Grass clippings and leaves blown or swept into storm drains or into the street harm waterways and creeks. Storm drains flow into pipes and into drainageways. When anything but rain and snow melt goes down the storm drain, it can become a drainage problem. Improper disposal of yard wastes including leaves, have the potential to impact both the water quality in Coal Creek, Rock Creek, and Waneka Lake, and cause drainage problems during a storm event.  The City will be holding a Fall Leaf Drop-Off starting on Oct. 26.  Residents may also call their trash hauler for other available disposal options.
