Seasonal Leaf Collection
The Parks Department spent a significant amount of time this week performing seasonal leaf collection. Although staff is relieved to finally see measurable rain, it also initiates further leaf-fall throughout City Parks and L&L Districts. The last two weeks, Parks staff concentrated on removing leaves in all City parks. The process included blowing off the leaves into the street and then clearing them with the street sweeper. We make an effort to mulch some of the leaves inside the parks as well, which benefits the turf. A total of 25 additional yards of mulch was accumulated, that will later be sent to Recology to grind into compost. With the new Shelter in Place Order for Sonoma County allowing parks and playgrounds to remain open, the department has been busy keeping up sanitation and supplies at each location.
