Elizabeth Nelson's City Council Blog

I write a City Council newsletter with my summary of agenda items coming before City Council.

Sign up to receive it first via email, or read it here later on this blog. I also post my perspectives on how issues were resolved, and charts of how Council voted at each meeting. I post Ward 4 road construction news under "Construction", and other news that affects Ward 4 residents under the category "Ward 4 News". News that affects all city residents is posted under "City News".

Compost collection extended to Dec 21

Due to Ann Arbor's early cold snap and upcoming warm weather, 2018's curbside compost collection end date has been extended to Friday, Dec. 21. The city will continue to service compost carts and paper yard waste bags through this date.


As a reminder this holiday season, Christmas trees ​cannot be discarded on the street or be left out on extensions. The city provides four free drop-off locations for undecorated Christmas trees from Friday, Dec. 14, 2018, through Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019.

This information was announced at last night's City Council meeting (Dec 3, 2018), and was also emailed to residents this morning (Dec 4, 2018) by the City of Ann Arbor. Sign up to receive city emails here: https://www.a2gov.org/services/Pages/E-mailAlertSubscription.aspx
