Weather Results in Cancellation of Garbage Collection

March 24, 2009 – Due to extremely icy road conditions, garbage collection is suspended for today. If conditions improve later today garbage collection may resume.

Residents of Area 1, Zones 1 and 2, who normally receive collection on Tuesdays, are asked to remove their garbage from the curb if it is not collected by 5:30 pm today. Place it out for collection next Tuesday, on your regular waste collection day. Listen to the media for updates on waste collection in this area. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Road crews have been out since the rain began yesterday afternoon. Main streets have been treated and are in passable condition. Side streets are very icy.

Sidewalk crews have been working since early this morning, but pedestrians are advised to avoid using sidewalks if possible.

Crews continue to work on roads and sidewalks.
