FALL LEAF PICK UP
Just a reminder to our residents - leaves are beginning to fall but the City of Willard Leaf Pick Up won't begin for a few weeks. PLEASE DO NOT RAKE LEAVES OUT INTO THE STREET. Leaves in or near catch basins can cause drainage problems. If you do rake your leaves into the street, you could be given a citation to court. The City offers residents a composting transfer area for drop off of leaves and yard waste material. This is for Willard residents only (no contractors). The site is located at the Maintenance Department at 537 Central. Drop off times are available during working hours, Monday through Friday, 7 am to 5 pm. Please contact the Maintenance Department at 419-933-7531 if you have any questions.

MYRTLE AVENUE TREE PROJECT
In 2018, the Willard Tree Commission, appointed by City Council, began discussing tree replacement needs throughout the city. They concluded that the southern portion of Myrtle Avenue trees, located in the “boulevard”, needed to be replaced. The southern portion of Myrtle Avenue is often referred to as the gateway to our City, and with City Council’s blessing, the Tree Commission adopted the project to beautify the entrance. Find complete details under the Maintenance Department on this website. The Tree Commission currently has a vacancy for another member. The commission service is voluntary and interesting. If you are interested in this type of community service, please contact the City Manager’s office at 419-933-2591 for more details.
