(The) schedule will be announced in advance to give property owners at least one week’s notice of pick-up in their area. The debris removal contract is expected to be awarded by late next week and announcement of the first pick-up schedules will begin soon after that.
Other storm strays:
•It's about a half-hour wait to dump debris at the landfill. The landfill drop site opens at 7 a.m. Saturday and will be open until 4 p.m. Sunday is a day of landfill rest.
•Property owners have to keep the sidewalk and streets clear. It's the law.
"However," Whall said, "the City is NOT issuing tickets for this code violation because of current circumstances and does not have plans to do so except as a last-resort measure to ensure public safety. It will be announced if it comes to that, but the City believes that with public education and information, the majority of residents will try to store debris properly without obstructing streets or sidewalks."
