City Services


  • In the event of any weather-related incidents, regularly scheduled garbage, recycling and yard waste collections are performed and remain in effect until sustained tropical storm force winds reach 39 mph, provided there are no road or bridge closures.
  • Move empty garbage containers immediately after the collection to a secure area so they don't roll into traffic or become projectiles.
  • In the case of impending storm conditions, please check this website for messages or tune to your local media for updates or announcement of changes to your collection schedule.
  • Downed Trees: Call 311 for downed trees and large limbs on City property so crews can be dispatched.
