Fall Leaf Reminders – Leaves are beginning to fall and the City reminds the community that it’s the property owner’s responsibility to keep sidewalks adjoining private property in safe condition.
If there are leaves sidewalks, please remove them. Leaves should not be raked or blown onto the sidewalk, gutter or streets as they can plug storm drains and cause flooding (a violation of the Hood River Municipal Code). If there are catch basins by your property, please help keep them clear of leaves and debris to keep water draining and streets from flooding. The City Public Works department thanks you for your help keeping Hood River clean and safe.
It’s a property owner’s responsibility to keep sidewalks adjoining their property in safe condition. Owners are liable for damages and injuries resulting from unsafe sidewalks adjacent to their property.
Also, please make sure all garbage cans are placed in a safe place off the street to allow street sweeper accessibility.
The City Public Works department thanks residents and businesses for their help in keeping Hood River clean and safe.
