    Can the village get the leaf vac. fixed so residents do not have to bag anymore? Was easy raking to the curb and the leaf vac. doing the hard work. Any other village resident like bagging their leaves?

    I do not mind bagging the leaves. #1 thing to bagging them is they pick them up quick and they don't leave the yard dead as when we used to have to rake to the curb.

    Bagging the leaves makes the leaf pick up faster they can usually get the whole town picked up in one day and they continue to pick up usually daily. I like the bagging of leaves since they can pick them up faster so it doesn't kill the grass. I think it makes the village employees able to complete more tasks with bagging the leaves I remember when raking to the curb most of the time they wasn't able to use the vac when it snowed with the bags they can be picked up after it snows! so I hope the village continues the bagging of leaves other communities are starting to do the same thing glad the village isn't like Findlay where they don't do leaf or brush pick up any more
