As we all adapt to changes in how we socially interact or how business services are provided, I am pleased to share that the City has continued all essential operations, in some cases with limited staff. Our first responders in Police and Fire continue to serve you on a daily basis. Public Works employees are keeping to our regular refuse and recycling schedules, and are performing other essential duties. And, City leadership continues to monitor the health crisis and adjust business practices so as not to have any disruptions to our major operations while keeping our employees safe.
At this time, we do need to ask for your help and cooperation in regard to the regular collection of your trash and recycling. Our refuse and recycling employees are hard at work today and every day for our community, even as they work with a reduced staff. With many of our residents following the Governor’s order and staying home, we are encountering more trash/recycling and are experiencing significant problems with trash NOT being placed curbside on time. As always, your trash must be curbside by 7:00 am on your collection day. There has also been an uptick in the amount of bulk trash. Because of our reduced staff, and because bulk pickup is not an essential function, we would like to ask your cooperation in discontinuing placing any bulk items for pickup until this crisis has passed and we resume full operation. You can always bring your bulk items to the Service Department where dumpsters are available for your use at 14200 Superior Road in the rear.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
