In preparation for the impending inclement weather, please remove all cars from the street as soon as possible, especially overnight. Due to the timing of the storm, it is likely that the DPW will be working overnight, which could result in snow being placed back into driveways. We apologize for the inconvenience to those that shovel during the day today.
Due to the weather, recycle collection will be delayed until tomorrow (Tuesday, January 22, 2019). There is a chance that trash collection in some areas could also be delayed. Please leave anything that is not collected today out for pick up tomorrow.
