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.

Remember not to rake leaves onto the street. Leaves that fall into a yard are the property owners' responsibility. City crews remove only the leaves that fall naturally into the streets. 

In the event of snow, leaf pickup will be postponed until weather allows.

Attention to photos sent regarding 2029 W. Second Ave. property

A few weeks ago I asked our BANC communications officer, Tim Finneran, to forward the public notice for the application of a demolition permit related to the property at 2029 W. Second Ave. to our neighborhood council. I also asked Tim to include photos of the building that was planned to occupy this address. In error, I provided copy written photos in my email to Tim.  This was my error.

Respecting the legal rights of the owners of those photos, I ask you to delete any copies you have of these photos and to not make any that you have public in any manner.

These photos will be removed from any form of electronic media used by our executive committee.

Thank you for your attention to this and my apologies for any inconvenience this causes you and also to the legal owners of the photos.

Rick Biggerstaff
Chair, Browne's Addition Neighborhood Council
