The Public Works Department is scheduled to begin leaf collection next week.
If you're lucky enough to have your neighborhood included in the first-week collection, the National Weather Service forecast is looking great for you to get your raking done this weekend—sunny skies both days and high temperatures in the upper 50s Saturday and mid-60s Sunday.
Residents are reminded to keep all leaves, unbagged, at curbside. If you must use bags, the Public Works Department reminds you to only use paper bags.
It is recommended that residents rake or blow leaves to the curb the weekend before your scheduled collection week. Also, be sure there are not any branches or other objects mixed in with your leaves.
