Mayor Neal Schwieterman told the town council on Nov. 12 that the leaf bag program has come to an end because the town ran out of 3,600 blue bags. He deemed it another successful year for the program.
The town provides blue bags for residents to put their leaves in and then set them by the curb. Folks who want to have the leaves for compost pick up the special bags.
The idea for the program came from Barbara Peterson, town clerk, several years ago. "It continues to be very successful," the mayor said.
Suzanne Watson, local resident, asked if the town could use a leaf vacuum to get leaves out of the gutters.
The mayor said public works is working on the leaves in the gutters and streets, although the option of a leaf vac was too expensive.
Earlier in the meeting, the mayor had read a list of high schoolers who had helped rake leaves for residents who could not do so.blog comments powered by Disqus
