2023 Public Works Information

LEAF PICK-UP

Leaf pick-up begins mid-October and runs continuously through December, weather permitting.

The Service Department asks that all leaves be raked to the tree lawn and that piles be free of twigs, grass clippings, and other garden materials. Note that raking of leaves to cul-de-sac islands or into the street is not permitted.

BRANCH PICK-UP

The City's branch pick-up program runs April through November with chipping beginning the first Monday of each month.

The Crews make one complete pass through the City each month. Branches should be piled at the curb with the cut ends facing the street. This helps our crews in their collection efforts while increasing efficiency and worker safety as they operate the chipping equipment. Branches must not be greater than 10 inches in diameter.

SPECIAL NOTE
Branches can also be cut to 4' lengths or less and bundled to put out next to your trash and recycling carts for Waste Management to remove on Tuesdays throughout the season as an alternative to the monthly chipping program by the city's chipping crews. Limit of 4 bundles per week.

SNOW REMOVAL

The Service Department is responsible for clearing the streets of snow and ice. Plowing of the neighborhood streets begins after all major roadways have been cleared. 

Per City Ordinance, public sidewalks that abut your property are the homeowner’s responsibility to clear, and snow & ice removed from your driveway or sidewalk should not be pushed into the street or neighboring properties.

Senior snow plowing service is available for a nominal fee to residents 65 years of age or older.   Contact the Senior Center for program details and registration information at 330-963-8722.

MOSQUITO CONTROL

Mosquito Control is administered by the Summit County Department of Health. 

When and where do they spray?

Using the best practice system of integrated pest management, the decision of when and where to spray is based on our mosquito surveillance program. SCPH does not have a predetermined spray schedule. Factors that may result in an evening mosquito control application include: 

  1. Mosquitoes testing positive for WNV that were caught in mosquito traps.
  2. A spike in the number of Culex species (carriers of WNV) caught in mosquito traps.
  3. Severe weather conditions such as flooding dictate the need for additional adulticiding.

Spraying will begin at approximately 8:30 p.m. and continue until completed.  In the event of bad weather, the spray schedule may be modified.  An updated schedule will be available by noon on the following day by calling (330) 926-5667.
