Removal of Recreational Vehicles, Trailers and Other Items from City Streets
In order to ensure city equipment operators are able to navigate city streets, campers, unused licenced or unlicensed cars, trucks, recreational trailers, RVs, utility trailers, and free standing basketball nets, etc. are not to be left on streets, lanes or boulevards after October 15, 2019. Please remove all waste, refuse, building materials, yard clippings, etc., from public property as well.
Failure to remove these items will impede snow plowing and/or snow removal and may cause damage to City equipment and injury to equipment operators.
