Vehicles Must Be Moved In Browne's Addition For Leaf Pickup

Fall leaf pickup is coming to the Browne's Addition neighborhood Tuesday, December 6 and Wednesday, December 7. 

Starting at 9 a.m. on Tuesday crews will be sweeping the north/south streets. Cars that are not removed from these north/south streets will be towed at the owner’s expense. 

Starting at 9 a.m. on Wednesday crews will be sweeping the east/west streets. Cars that are not removed from these east/west streets will be towed at the owner’s expense.
