Blowing Leaves in Street FYI

FYI  I was at a business on Pearl Street a few days ago and the Lawn guy at the business next door was blowing all the yard leaves out into the street. It occurred to me that I don’t pay my tax dollars to the city to sweep up leaves that the lawn care guy is paid to pick up himself. So, I called the city and talked to them about what I had seen, and they informed me that it is in fact against the law to blow your yard leaves etc. into the streets. They also let me know that they do have times, certain days in late Nov and Dec that we can put the leaves, and only leaves into the street. But those days are announced on the news and in the paper and you cannot put leaves in the street any other time
