Mosquito Spraying
Spraying begins when the temperature consistently stays above 55 degrees. Spraying is done on Monday and Thursday evenings from 9:00 pm. Please remove all containers which could hold water from your property to deter breeding insects.

Leaf Collection
Leaves should be raked to the curb (not in the street) to be swept during October and November. Leaves mixed with yard or tree debris will not be swept.

Snow Removal
Snow removal is hampered by vehicles parked on the street. If at all possible, park in your driveway during snowfall, and be aware of specific areas where parking is prohibited during snow removal times.
