Please remember to keep your lawn well maintained and free of overgrown grass and weeds.  The Town Ordinance does not allow property owners to permit weed or tall grass to exceed an average of eight (8) inches in height.

*** Please Note that under the Solid Waste Ordinance, grass, yard waste and clippings are NOT permitted to fall or be placed on the street, curb, gutter, sidewalks or storm drain openings.

The Public Works Department provides yard waste pick-up every Monday and Friday mornings.  Please have your clippings and leaves either bagged or boxed and placed curbside the evening prior.
