Sanitation service will not operate Monday or Tuesday, allowing all Public Works  associates the opportunity to respond to weather related emergencies or situations. Those who were scheduled to have sanitation service pick up  on Monday should expect collection on Thursday, September 14 and Friday, September 15 for those normally receiving service on Tuesdays. It is  expected that sanitation services will resume a normal schedule Wednesday, September 13.

 In  preparation for the potential of severe weather, the City's Police and  Public Works associates are standing ready to respond to any special  needs or emergencies that may arise from the storm. Crews are currently  circulating throughout the City to maintain open roadways, remove  debris, and keep stormwater drains clear to lessen the effects of  significant rainfall and ponding. Equipment and resources are ready to  be mobilized to ensure public safety, and remove fallen trees and other  hazards.
