Spring and warmer weather is here! As a result, more citizens will be outside enjoying the city and walking.
Here are some tips for the Pedestrian Safety campaign, SafeStep. Just because you as a pedestrian using a crosswalk to cross the street, it does not mean that a motorist will see or even stop for you. Be a defensive pedestrian and don’t put your safety in the hands of motorists. Push the pedestrian signal button; it gives you more time to cross.

Spring time is here and the Engineering Department would like to remind you of some pruning, tree and brush removal, and planting information.
Please remember to be careful when working near a creek. Only hand cut small underbrush and minimize tree pruning. Trees and bushes help moderate the temperature of the water; filter pesticides, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment; and help prevent bank erosion. State and local ordinances prohibit clearing of buffers without a permit.
For more information contact the Engineering Department at 770-253-2682.
