Thank you for this opportunity.
At this time of year, we have even harder times parking our cars, which is difficult enough all year round.
I was wondering if you would consider this idea.
If every year, according to the year (odd or even) the leaves should be piled on that side of the road.
It would save two ways. 1- there will be parking on one whole side of the road, and 2- it would be easier for collection as they would only have to go down one side of the road.
As for the odd and even, I just think that it is fair that way and no one can complain that it takes up their side every autumn.
Response from Mayor Coles:
Thanks for your suggestion. I will forward it on to our Public Works Director. We are hoping that leaf pickup will be streamlined this year with the addition of our vacuum truck and the addition of a second shift at Public Works which will increase the number of hours we can pick up.
While we are on the subject of leaves, I want to remind everyone not to park their cars on top of a leaf pile. There have already been several fires resulting from this.
