Trash Pick Up - Community Advisory

If we get more than 6 inches of snow in the morning, it is likely that trash will not be able to be collected as the workers will be working to clear the streets. If the snow is 3 inches or less by morning, it is likely that trash will be collected. We will not know definitively until tomorrow morning. If trash is not picked up on Thursday, plans are to pick it up on Friday. This all depends on snow and road conditions. Thank you for your patience.

Snow Emergency Parking Information - Community Advisory

If a snow emergency is declared, cars should not park on Maple Avenue, as it is a Snow Emergency Route. To help City crews effectively plow the streets, please park in driveways or parking lots, if possible. For residents on streets with parking allowed on both sides, residents are asked to park on the even numbered side of the street (since today is an even numbered day), then park on the odd side of the street tomorrow.
