WM picks up on Tuesday of each week usually between 7AM – 7PM. Items specified should be placed curbside Monday evening. The trash haulers/cans and recycle bins/haulers are to be returned to resident’s backyards Tuesday evening. Items should not be placed or left in either the city easement or curbside between WM collection dates.
With the easing of restrictions, we’re visiting our friends and family more. Don’t forget to make sure your guests know to park with all four wheels on the pavement, facing the direction of traffic. Violators will be given a ticket!
There has been some concern that some planes flying into and out of Bowman Field are unusually low. If you think a plane is flying in any unsafe manner, contact the FAA Flight Standards District Office at 502-753-4200.
Everyday Safety Measures

-If out shopping or unloading your vehicle, look for what might seem unusual or out or place.
-Think about being able to provide a detailed description of people and vehicles.

-If you feel your safety might be in danger, call 911.
-Never leave a gun (or ammunition) in your vehicle. Always lock your vehicle.
-Park your vehicles in your garage. If the garage is attached to the house, close and lock the garage door and lock the door into the house.
-Do not leave your car fob or keys in the vehicle.
-If you do not have a garage, park the vehicle in the driveway and preferably the backyard driveway. Lock the driveway gate.

It is easy to provide a list but when suddenly faced with a dangerous situation you never know how you might react. Stay alert and stay safe.
