Brush Pickup


For a number of years, the City has been picking up brush once a month. Unfortunately, with the imminent construction of the new Fire Station and Public Works facility, there is no longer a place for the City to put limbs, brush, etc.

However, Progressive Waste Solutions will pick up tree and shrub trimmings which are not easily placed in cans or bags and that do not exceed four (4) feet in length or fifty (50) pounds in weight. Smaller sized tied bundles are preferred and there should not be more than three (3) cubic yards of brush on any given week.

These materials should be reasonably contained and please within five(5) feet of the curbside or right of way adjacent to the residence no later than 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.

If you have standing water, the City has a limited number of mosquito dunks available while supplies last. Each dunk will treat up to 100 sq. ft. regardless of the depth and is fish habitat safe.

Stop by City Hall to pick a bag up of 2 dunks if needed.

Attn: Wastewater Customers

During the recent rain events, the City's wastewater system has been carrying far more water than in normal conditions. We need your help in trying to get this heavy flow down to its normal amounts. This high level of flow causes problems in our lift stations and at our treatment plant.

Where you come in -- The sewer lines that extend onto your property could be leaking allowing rainwater to enter the system. A broken cleanout cap or cracked line in a low area can carry hundreds, if not thousands, of gallons into the collection system. The water coming from one yard isn't problematic by itself but when you have thousands of customers it adds up to an overwhelming amount.

What to do -- Please look around your yard for broken sewer piping of cleanout caps. If you suspect a problem, the Public Works Department would be glad to assist you in further identifying the problem and potential solutions. If you identify a problem area, please call (940) 482-3491 ext. 2. If we are not there, please leave a message with your address and phone number and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Mark Patterson
Public Works Director
