Fall is near and the City of Washington Maintenance and Construction Department will begin leaf pick up October 21 beginning in the N/W quadrant of the City, moving in a counter clockwise direction. The leaf vac program will continue until November 27, 2019. Residents may place leaves in the terrace area between the sidewalk and the street. Please do not place leaves in the street as this creates drainage and traffic hazards. Questions or comments can be directed to the M/C Dept at 319-653-2947.
