Public Works Notices for July/August 2003
Holiday Pick Up: Friday, July 4, 2003, Public Works will be closed. Garbage pick up for the whole town will be on Thursday, July 3, 2003. This includes bulk trash and metal.
Keep our Town Beautiful: Please sweep or remove grass clippings and weeds from the sidewalk and curb/gutter when mowing lawns or trimming weeds near the sidewalk or streets. It is against the Town Code to cause any material of any kind to be scattered, dropped, etc. upon any street, alley, sidewalk, gutter, roadway or public place within the town. This allows easy flow of water along the gutters and keeps our town beautiful.
Getting Rid of Mosquitoes: Now that the summer heat has started after many weeks of rain, mosquito season is in full swing. Our wet spring is leading to especially high larvae populations. You can reduce mosquito annoyance in your yard by eliminating sites around the outside of the home that serve as habitat for mosquito larvae. As little as ½ inch of water in a discarded tin can will support dozens of mosquitoes. Clean roof gutters and corrugated downspout drainpipes. Flush birdbaths and containers under potted plants twice a week. Properly dispose of used tires (Public Works will pick up for small fee.) Turn over wading pools, wheelbarrows, pails, and any other object that holds water, including items stored under decks and porches. Drain water from tarps and grill covers. Mulch soggy ground to absorb water.
