Roanoke-CityRoanoke City crews are nearing the end of week one leaf collection, but there is still plenty to go.  And inspectors are on the lookout for people who try raking leaves onto city streets — leaves that can wash into and back up storm drains during heavy rains. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.

If you have arranged for a private contractor to pick up leaves you rake onto the street, you must notify Roanoke City by calling (540) 853-2000.

Leaf collections are also scheduled for the weeks of November 24th and December 8th.
