Important City Service Update: Our annual leaf collection service was due to be complete last week, but has been extended through December 21 due to late leaf fall resulting in high volume and impact of ice storm debris.  Thank you for your patience.

We are in our final round of leaf & ice storm debris collection and crews are currently working in District 9. We will then proceed in numerical order to Districts 10, 11 then Districts 1, 2 & 3.  Districts 4 - 8 are done for the year, we will not be coming back through before spring.

Residents can visit this page to easily find their leaf district.

If we complete collection in your district and you still need to dispose of leaves you may either place them in your Waste Management toter for collection on your normal pick up day or you can take leaves to our Yard Debris Center on Woodman Center Drive through December 22nd. Yard Debris Center hours are Monday through Friday 3-8 PM and Saturday 9 AM – 3 PM.

Community-Oriented Policing

What is Community-Oriented Policing?
Community-Oriented Policing (COP) is a philosophy whereby members of the police department establish partnerships with members of the community with the purpose of identifying and solving problems affecting the quality of life in their neighborhoods, utilizing any and all available resources.
This philosophical approach does not take away from the traditional response to crimes in progress. The intent of COP is not to turn police officers into social workers. By creating an effective partnership with community members, officers are more effective in solving crime and prosecuting criminals.
What is a COP Project?
A COP project is an active response to solve a problem within a neighborhood. This response includes involvement of citizens and local organizations. A police officer is designated as coordinator for each project and will act as facilitator in the problem-solving efforts.
COP Project Process:
Recognition of a problem by officer, citizen, City Council/City Manager or City employee.
Project initiation form completed by officer and sent up the Chain of Command.
Interdepartmental personnel, outside agencies and concerned meet to formulate a plan of action.
Once approved, the plan is implemented.
Ongoing project maintenance including evaluation and review of effectiveness will be conducted by all parties assigned to project.
