Residents can bring their brush collection to the Brush Facility located at 9911CR 415 this week from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm, and on Saturday during the regular hours of 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Other storm debris such as fencing, shingles, and construction debris will need to be taken to Twin Oaks Landfill.

We continue to encourage residents to wait before using the parks until the City can address any downed trees, limbs, lights, or other safety concerns.
