There is only one branch pickup scheduled for 2020.
Branches must be out at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on May 11th
Any branches put out after that time will not be picked up. This
is the only way to assure that Public Works staff time is used
efficiently. Branches put out any other time will result in a fine.
Branches will be picked up for free, up to piles 4’ tall by 6’ wide
by 8’ long, a standard truck bed size. Any pile bigger than that
will not be picked up until a fee is paid. Fees start at $75.
Branches should be under 8’ long. Longer branches will need
to be cut before being picked up and a fee of $25 must be paid
for this service prior to pick up.
Yesterday a resident parked their car in their driveway on Iles Ave around 10:00 am. The vehicle was left unlocked with a purse in the car. At 12:30 pm the resident found that her purse had been stolen. Officers searched along Iles Ave, but could not locate the missing property. Jerome residents located the purse and wallet on different sides of the village. Thank you to the residents that helped get the victim’s property back.
Please remember that thieves don’t just operate at night. Be aware and lock your home and cars even if you are home.
Chief of Police
