City crews hoping for a clean sweep before the snow falls

LOGAN – Winter weather is on its way and if you are spending the next couple of days cleaning up the last of your fall leaves, you won’t be alone.

City crews will be working overtime during the next week vacuuming the streets in an effort to rid the gutters and waterways of the final remnants of the fall season.

“We cover 290 miles,” according to Logan City Crew Chief Reed Romney. “We go down each side of the road during the season and try to do every street in the city. We’ll usually make one or two passes, depending on the weather. We are trying to keep the waterways, the gutters and our streets clean.”

Romney said crews will also pick up large piles of leaves as long as they are located on residents’ parking strips.

Leaf clean up crews begin sweeping the streets the “second week of October and will go until the snow flies,” said Romney. “Generally speaking, that’s usually Thanksgiving or the week after.”

He added, “We’ll probably keep them (working) through dark so we can get it done before next week’s storms come in.”
