Streetside Leaf Vacuum Service for Montgomery! :)
Dear Montgomery City Officials:
Most of the time, we love Montgomery’s beautiful trees, and we appreciate all that you do to promote them.
However, every fall, we watch enviously as our neighbors in Blue Ash, Madeira, Sharonville, Amberley, Deer Park, and other communities simply rake their leaves to the curb to be picked up by a leaf vacuum service provided by their cities ... while we are stuck lifting, cramming, stomping, grinding, and stuffing our leaves into bags and containers for pickup in Montgomery.
Providing leaf removal with a truck that vacuums leaves piled on the side of the street would improve the quality of life for Montgomery residents for the entire fall season. It could be subcontracted (as our park maintenance currently is), the disposal of the leaves would likely cost nothing (Blue Ash has agreements with local businesses to take their leaves for free), and it would reduce the risk of injury to workers lifting the heavy bags and cans of leaves (a potential liability for the city).
We urge you to begin providing street side leaf-vacuum pickup for Montgomery residents. Thank you!
