Leaves finally leave in Kettering

KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – A renewed faith in city government.

That is what Krystyna King says she has now after those leaves were finally cleaned up Friday.

King lives on Tahitian Place in Kettering.

She says they’ve been an eye sore for the past 3 months.  The leaves were originally scheduled for pick up on December 6.

She says it’s been ruining lawns in the neighborhood.

The city manager told 2 NEWS earlier this week that the brutal winter forced the delay in leaf pick-up and snow and ice take precedent due to the safety concerns.

King says she’s just happy the headache is finally gone and she hopes she won’t have the same problem again.

“My city councilman actually called me this morning and touched base with me.  We were just chatting and he asked me. We were just talking briefly and I think the City of Kettering is looking at, in terms of, how they’re going to do street clean-up, especially when it comes to the ice and snow.  So, they’re really looking at innovative ways and, you know, what other cities are doing throughout the country to, in terms of clean up and keeping on top of things,” explains King.

The city will be collecting leaves occasionally when the weather is nice, like Friday.

There is a spring clean up day scheduled for April 14.  On that day, crews will go around to every street and pick up leaves.
