Storm Drains Clogging 10-31-2019

 Despite the DPW’s best efforts, it is simply impossible for the staff to clear the thousands of storm drains on a daily basis that might get clogged and often are covered with leaves shortly after they are cleared. Residents are strongly encouraged to take a broom or a shovel to remove the leaves and debris that might be covering the storm drain in front of their property to ensure the water is entering the storm drain system to reduce the potential of property damage. If you have elderly or disabled neighbors, you are also encouraged to lend a helping hand to clear the catch basins in front of their properties as well. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
