Sweeping the Community
As the leaves begin to fall, City staff and contractors hit the streets in force to sweep them up. When sweeping or raking leaves on your lawn or sidewalk, be sure you “keep what you sweep.” Whether you bag your leaves or compost them, keep them out of the street to aid street sweeping operations. For more information on the sweeping program, visit bit.ly/sweepinglongmont or call 303-651-8416.
