Heat Causing Solid Waste and Yard Waste Pickup Delays

Heat has significantly impacted the readiness of our solid waste and yard waste trucks. As a result, we haven’t had enough available trucks to maintain solid waste and yard waste pickup schedules. Equipment issues with these trucks in such hot and humid conditions as we’ve experienced over the last few weeks are not uncommon. We apologize to residents for the inconvenience. Our first priority is to pick up solid waste (green carts). Our staff is currently working on its off days of Wednesdays and Saturdays to catch up on missed routes. Our second priority is yard waste (brown carts) and it may not be collected this week. At this time, it is recommended to leave solid waste out for pickup and it will be collected as soon as possible. We hope to be back on schedule next week and will keep residents informed on our progress. 

Legend Avenue

Project Overview: 

Legend Avenue is located between Sycamore Dairy Road and Skibo Road. The City will complete a widening and realignment of Legend Avenue, which will consist of widening the existing roadway at the intersection of Sycamore Dairy Road and Legend Avenue and aligning the road to an existing signalized intersection on Skibo Road. This project has been divided into 2 phases.

Phase I - The city will widen Legend Avenue for approximately 600 feet from the intersection of Sycamore Dairy Road moving towards Skibo Road. 

Phase II - The city will realign Legend Avenue to the north with the signalized intersection the is currently present at Skibo Road, and relocate and make adjustments to an existing stormwater pond.
