Fayette Leaf Pick-up - Starts Oct. 23rd

FAYETTE TOWN-WIDE LEAF PICK UP

Leaf pick up, by the Fayette Public Works Department, will begin on Monday, October 23, 2017. Pick up will be on Mondays (weather permitting).  Place raked leaves on the City parkway or right-of-way between the sidewalk and the back of the curb. If you don’t have a curb, then place on the grassy area near the street. Please DO NOT place in the street!! Also, no tree branches or sticks should be mixed with the leaves.

The City Yard Waste Disposal Site is open on Wednesdays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. for disposing of branches, sticks, leaves and other yard waste.  Yard waste may also be burned, but burning of trash is prohibited. Thank you for your cooperation in making Fayette a better place.

BURNING LEAVES

Now that fall is upon us and tree leaves will be in abundance on the ground, the City of Fayette wants to remind you that City Ordinance 135.08 prohibits the burning of leaves on any curb and gutter or on any paved or surfaced street or alley. A fire burns not only the leaves, but also the tar/oil in asphalt, and it can crack the concrete.

Flushing Hydrants Oct. 24th, 2017

The Fayette Public Works employees will be flushing hydrants on Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 (weather permitting) beginning at 7am in the city of Fayette. Residents may experience rusty water.

NOW LIFTED: Burn Ban in Fayette

As of 11:30AM on Thursday, Oct. 5th, Fayette County has lifted the Burn Ban.  City of Fayette residents may now burn yard waste. 

Burn Ban

There is still a burn ban in effect for Fayette County, including the city of Fayette. Only small camp fires are allowed in fire rings. As a reminder, you are not to burn leaves while the burn ban is in effect. You may bag your leaves or take them to the City of Fayette's Yard Waste site (open Wednesdays 2PM-4PM and Saturdays 8AM-10AM). The City of Fayette will announce when we will start picking up leaves soon (usually we start around the middle of October).

Housing Focus Group Meeting Sept. 5th.

The City of Fayette and Upper Iowa University have partnered together to identify ways to develop and strengthen our community. The partnership has already taken steps in starting to evaluate business and cultural development opportunities. Now, we want to start to assess housing needs in our community and would like your feedback.
 
Individuals interested in providing input about housing options they would like to see in Fayette (rental and purchase) are encouraged to participate in a focus group from 6 p.m. - 7 p.m. on Tues., Sept. 5. The focus group will be conducted in the ICN Room at the Fayette Community Library (104 W. State Street). The focus group will be facilitated by Glenn Lyons and Marilyn Arber of 571 Polson Developments and information gathered will be used as future housing initiatives are considered.
I hope you can attend and help us to continue to make Fayette the best place to live, work, go to school and play!
