City offers leaf pickup
With the onset of fall, leaves are once again falling from city trees. The Corning Public Works Department is requesting all residents to please place all leaf piles one foot away from the curb so as not to obstruct street gutters and allow proper drainage during periods of rainfall. No burning of leaves is allowed on city streets or within street gutters. At this time the city has tentatively scheduled to begin leaf pickup by mid-November. City crews pick them up as needed when work schedules allow. Leaves will not be picked up if the pile contains tree branches, brush or other debris. For more information call the Public Works Department at 824-7029.
