Improvements to four school crossings in the City will start on Friday, October 18, 2019. This project includes the installation of new crosswalks on Dan Hoey near Lexington and Ann Arbor Street near Kensington. Rapid flashing beacons will also be installed: at the two previously mentioned crossings; along Dan Hoey near Dongara; and along Baker near the pedestrian island. Please proceed with caution through the construction zones.
Leaf pick-up by the Department of Public Works (DPW) will begin the week of October 14, 2019. Please park cars as far away from leaf piles as possible. It is also very important to make sure that there is no debris in the leaf piles (garbage, sticks, pumpkins, etc). The leaves should be piled as close to the curb as possible and not placed into the road, ditches, storm drains or parking places. The closer the piles are to the curb, the quicker they are able to be collected by the equipment.
