The City of Oregon will begin its fall leaf collection on Tuesday, October 21st. (See 2014 Leaf Collection Schedule below for detailed schedule.) Pile the leaves in the right-of-way and NOT in the street. Leaves in narrow piles are easier to collect with the city's leaf vacuum. Do not make the piles over four feet from the road edge because the hose of the leaf vacuum cannot reach farther. Please do not pile leaves next to mailboxes or signs and refrain from parking near leaf piles, as it is difficult to maneuver the hoses around obstacles and parked cars.
PLEASE NOTE, this is a LEAF PICKUP ONLY. Do not mix branches, grass clippings or any other debris with the leaf piles, as crews will leave the entire pile. This debris can damage the leaf vacuum machines causing downtime and delays in our scheduled pick-up days.
Mayor Mike Seferian has announced that there will be another Navarre-Dustin-Issac Streets Stakeholders' meeting on Thursday, October 23 at 9:00 am in the Council Chambers at the City of Oregon Municipal Building, 5330 Seaman Road. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the City's Navarre Avenue Safety Grant Project and to hear public comment. The City will present the proposed preliminary design to improve Navarre Avenue between I-280 and Isaac Streets Drive.
