  • Leaf collection delayed, expected to begin soon

    Editor:

    The City of Carrollton ordered a new leaf machine in July of this year.  Delivery was supposed to be Oct. 1, but due to a shortage of 80 horsepower motors, delivery was moved to Oct. 18. 

    On Oct. 17 we received a call from the company that delivery was moved to Oct. 25.  The water pump on our old machine went out, and we sent it off through a local company for repair. They lost the pump and are trying to get a new one, but have not been successful.
