The beginning of the third cycle of leaf collection along roadways in Sylvania Township may be delayed by about a week, according to Rob Nash, superintendent of the township’s road and service department.
Originally scheduled to begin Nov. 30, Mr. Nash said despite hard-working crews, the amount of leaves and some rainy conditions have made the task difficult.
He also cited the difficulty he has run into in hiring temporary workers this year.
He said contractors have been used for some of the work and some township employees have been working six days a week in an effort to keep up with the annual job.
Some of his comments came after township trustees had complimented his department on this year’s collection efforts.
“We still intend to complete three cycles of leaf collection in the township,” Mr. Nash said.
The superintendent added that, as is often the case, the ability to do that will be dependent on the weather.
