Avoid Firework Fines

Pop-Up Donation Drop

This new series of community drop-off events allows people to donate unwanted items to help reduce the amount of reusable goods that end up in the landfill.

Curbside Organics Carts

Beginning July 1, 2021, curbside customers must use City-issued organics carts for food scraps and yard waste; personal containers will no longer be accepted.

Playground Program

This free summer program offers activities for kids grade K-6 at a variety of parks across our community. Learn how to register your children to participate!

BookWalk at Willow Creek Park

Learn how this new project is taking storytime out in nature to keep kids active, both physically and mentally.
