Leaf collection will continue until all leaves are removed from the streets.  For safety reasons, please do not park on or play in the leaf piles.  The Public Works Department removes approximately 15,000 cubic yards of leaves during an average season.  Sometimes Mother Nature does not cooperate.  There may be rain and snow storms during the pickup cycles, also trees dropping all their leaves on their schedule not ours may delay leaf collection.
