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.

Flood Safety

FLOOD SAFETY
Flood, July 1960, 3548 Valleywood
Whether you live in the floodplain or happen to be caught in a flooded area, you should take several steps to decrease your risk.
  • Do not attempt to cross a flowing stream where water is above your knees.
  • Keep children away from flood waters, ditches, culverts and storm drains.
  • Avoid driving in high-water areas. If your vehicle stalls in high water, abandon it and seek higher ground.
  • Do not touch electrical equipment while standing in water. If water has or will imminently enter your structure, cut off all electric at the electric panel or disconnect the switch. If this is not possible, turn off or disconnect all electrical appliances. Use a flashlight to inspect for damage. Don’t smoke or use candles, lanterns or open flames unless you know the gas has been turned off and the area has been ventilated. Contact your energy provider or licensed contractor to check for any hazards prior to re-entering the structure.
For emergencies call 9-1-1.
