Neighborhood News - Additional Information

St. Joseph County Leaf Pick-up Program

We do have news that the County Commissioners are planning on a one year contract with Greenworld (the vendor that has been collecting the leaves for the last 3 years). The plan is for 2 pickups and no Spring collection.  We don't know about the timing of the collections, what sections and subs will go first, or when they will have any of that information.  There are 2 other vendors that showed interest and it would be nice to know who they are so we could reach out and see what they might charge to supplement the county program.  We will be attending the next Commissioners meeting on Tuesday June 5th 10am 4th Floor of the City County Building.  Here are more details from the article in the South Bend Tribune.
