NORTH WEBSTER — The good news for those who reside in the North Webster town limits is leaf collection has been continued until Friday, Dec. 9. Severn Trent Utilities Manager Mike Noe shared the news with the North Webster Town Council at its monthly meeting Tuesday, Nov. 15, in the North Webster Community Center.
“Due to the long fall, the department will be picking up leaves for an extended period of time. After we get the Christmas decorations up this week, we will add brush pick up as well,” he noted. “Remember it is illegal to burn leaves in town,” added Police Chief Greg Church.
Noe also reported all major components are in place for the state mandated revamp of the town’s sewer plant and system. The department has two more winter banners to put up but the majority is completed. Price estimates are being gathered for a new lawn mower.
The council approved payment for two bills for the sewer system. Selge Construction, Granger, will receive $231,750 and Crosby Construction, Fort Wayne, will get $161,243.25 for services rendered.
Church said the police department made 196 calls of service in October with the most citizen assists. Officers worked 616.7 hours, drove 4,072 miles and used 329.3 gallons of fuel.
The next meeting of the North Webster Town council will be held 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20, in the party room at the North Webster Community Center, 301 N. Main St.
