The Annual Leaf Pickup Program in Osage Beach is right around the corner. According to City Hall, crews from the Public Works Department will begin on Monday, November 28th, hitting the east end in the areas of Mace Road and Ozark Meadows. Once again, the City is using the option of biodegradable bags which can be purchased at local merchants or picked up, free of charge, from the Public Works building or City Hall. Residents who take advantage of the program need to call Public Works to let them know when the bags will be placed at the curb or end of the driveway. The bags cannot contain any other yard waste. Weather permitting, crews will also hit city-owned streets to vacuum leaves.
