LEAF COLLECTION HAS BEEN EXTENDED

Due to the unseasonably warm weather and the lack of snow, the City of Lorain is extending citywide leaf collection until December 15, 2017.  Residents are encouraged to rake their leaves to the curb as soon as possible so city crews can clean the leaf piles placed at the curb as they circulate throughout the city each day.     full story
