The City of Branson Public Works Department asks that residents refrain from placing leaves in City streets, right of ways and along ditches or sidewalks. Leaves blown or raked into these areas can cause safety hazards for motorists, clogs storm drains, may interfere with the operation of the street sweeper and is prohibited by City ordinance.
City Public Works Crews work diligently to keep these areas free and clear of debris and vegetation for proper stormwater management.
