The County understands and acknowledges there are remaining areas, especially in Clay and Harris Townships, that have not received  a “first pass”.  These areas are the County’s highest priority to complete once conditions improve and the snow and ice are gone.  The County and Greenworld crews will make every effort to complete the first pass in the remaining areas as soon as the weather permits, which may not be until spring. Once Greenworld crews are able to complete the first pass, the County has directed Greenworld to take a second pass through the townships in the spring to collect any remaining leaves. The County will monitor developing forecasts and provide the media program updates ahead of the anticipated changes in the weather and temperatures.  Also, please visit the program’s web-site at www.SJCLP.com for program updates.
