As leaves are falling, please remember that any raking or blowing leaves into the street is prohibited. This can lead to flooding in our storm sewers and because the leaves will end up in our lakes, the nutrients will accelerate algae growth. And dying algae can also kill the fish. We are surrounded by beautiful lakes and know we all want to help keep our City a beautiful place to live.
Mulching is an excellent alternative and the nutrients released actually improve our lawns.
