Watch those leaves, people!

GRANGEVILLE — The City of Grangeville would like to remind residents that it is not lawful to blow or rake your leaves into the street or gutter pans. This clogs up the drain system and the city does not have the personnel or finances to take care of this. Dispose of your leaves through the transfer station/garbage.
