Following the season’s first snow storm which downed tree limbs througout the area, the city has said they will be providing free limb removal for residents.
Karen Bothwell with the Public Works department, told the Gazette that the city will remove any downed tree limbs by Nov. 7 if residents can get them to the curb. Bothwell said senior citizens or others that are not able to move the limbs should contact the city for assistance. “We certainly don’t want someone to injure themselves trying to move a limb.”
The city has also opened a site at 14th Ave and A Street where residents can drop off tree limbs. The site will be open 24/7 until Nov. 15. “If they are able to bring them here, that would really help our street crews out,” Bothwell said.
Bothwell said residents need to remember to be especially cautious with limbs near power lines.
The city of Evans has opened up their Fall clean up-site at 3323 1st Avenue for residents to drop off their limbs. The site will be open from 8:00 a.am. to 3:00 p.m.
