Tuesday Trash Pick-up Cancelled This Week -- Save It For Next Week!

From the Streets Department web site: "Due to the Martin Luther King Day federal holiday, sanitation collections are delayed one day throughout the week. Regular Tuesday collections will be cancelled tomorrow (Wednesday, January 22nd) and postponed until next week. Citizens with regular Tuesday pick-up should hold their trash until next week and place trash out on their normal pick-up day."

Sewer and Water Main Work

PWD has started working in the neighborhood. They're now on the 2200 block of Kater Street. During Town Watch patrol earlier this week, we talked to a resident on this block. As you would expect, she was concerned about the reduced parking due to the street closure (through early March according to the signs). Her house has a garage which she can't now access due to the great big hole in the street, so she has to drive around finding a parking spot. Fortunately, she was smart enough to have moved her car out of the area ahead of time, and her car isn't now stuck in the garage for the duration.
