DPW would like to remind property owners that City Codes Chapter 100 Brush, Grass and Weeds, Section 100-1 references control of growth and harmful vegetation. Please be aware that property, lots or land, including the area between the property line and the curb or for 10 feet outside the property line if there is no curb shall be maintained to ensure that no growth of weeds or grass shall exceed six inches. Please do not allow hedges, shrubs or trees to encroach onto public sidewalks and lines of sight of public roadways.
Spring Yard and Lawn Debris is underway. DPW reminds everyone that it shall be the duty of any owner, occupant or person having control of any lot to ensure that the collected debris shall be placed between the sidewalk and curb and shall not in any way hinder the free access by the public to the sidewalk or street. If collected yard wastes are placed in containers, the containers shall be made of paper or other biodegradable material. The use of plastic bags is specifically prohibited, and leaves placed in plastic bags will not be picked up.
A limited number of paper bags can be picked up free of charge at City Clerks office 47 Castle Street.
