Center Street project nears completion

Leaf pick-up began this week



CLINTON — The Center Street project is nearly completed, commissioner Ken Buchanan said Monday during the city council meeting. 

“We’ve got a little concrete work left to do and some landscaping,” he said. 

Buchanan said landscaping probably would not be done until later.

A major portion of curbs and gutters were replaced along Center Street from Woodlawn to Van Buren, and S. Center Street was repaved from Adams Street to Van Buren.

Buchanan also said leaf pick-up was scheduled to begin this week.  The city will begin pick-up with one leaf vac and then expand to two when part-time personnel start in November.

“I just ask everybody to, please, keep your leaves separated from brush,” Buchanan said.

He also asked residents to be sure to pile leaves between sidewalks and curbs, not on the street, where they can be washed over the top of storm drains.
