Goodbye fall, hello winter

Leaf pickup in progress throughout Manistee, snow predicted this weekend

MANISTEE — The fall season might be coming to an end, but leaf pickup is still in full swing in Manistee.

Annual leaf pickup started on Nov. 5, and will continue into the first week of December. Crews will begin each Monday and complete one pass throughout the city each week.

Alternate parking is in effect from Oct.15 through April 15 for leaf and snow removal. The alternate parking system is in effect 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Even dates — park on even numbered side of the street. Odd dates — park on odd numbered side of the street.

The change-over time is between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., allowing residents to switch their vehicles for the upcoming day. Everyone is asked to abide the alternate parking system to allow this process to run smoothly.

Also coming up this week, the National Weather Service expects 3-5 inches of snow in the Manistee County area. Drivers are advised to prepare for the conditions, drive carefully and give themselves extra time to get to their destination.

Stay up-to-date on weather conditions, as the winter season starts up in Michigan.
