Weekly Update October 30th, 2017


The Road Department will begin the 2017 Leaf Collection Program on October 30th and start in the northern most section of the Township, near the City of Kettering / Moraine borders. Two leaf loaders will be used initially and a 3rd leaf loader and crew will join the process as necessary. The street sweeper will  not be included in this year's program.

Reminder: Leaves should not be placed in the roadway. This creates a safety hazard for traveling motorists and automobiles parked on top of leaf piles. Leaves should be placed at the backside of curbs, easily accessible to leaf collection equipment.

The collection cycles will proceed through the Township as follows:


Huber subdivision- Stroop Road to Alex Bell Road (Near City of Moraine)
Spring Valley subdivision- Alex Bell Road to Cox Arboretum (West side of SR 741)
Singing Hills subdivision- West Alex Bell Road to Bishop Liebold schools (East side of SR 741)
Vienna Park subdivision- Munger Road to Mad River Road
Kingswood subdivision- Both sides of Mad River Road  (North of the Dayton Mall)
Villages of Miami subdivision- SR 741 to Washington Church Road  (South of the Dayton Mall)
Crains Run subdivision- Off Miamisburg Springboro Road & Crains Run Road (Near Austin Landing)
Quail Creek subdivision- Entrances at Medlar Road (Near Pipestone Golf Course)
Rural Roadways- East and West of  Great Miami River
Chautauqua subdivision- West of  Great Miami River (Near City of Carlisle)
Bear Creek Estates subdivision
- West of  Great Miami River

Two crews began the week on October 30th at the northern borders of the township in the Huber subdivision and completed the plat.  Crews moved into the Spring Valley subdivision on the 30th. Due to the lack of adequate leaf drop, the program was scaled back on October 31st to one crew, working in the Spring Valley and Singing Hills subdivisions. The department will continue to monitor subdivisions for leaf piles and increase crew sizes appropriately for continued efficiency and fiscal responsibility. On November 1st a crew completed the Singing Hills subdivision and moved into Vienna Park. On November 2nd the single crew worked in Vienna Park. The one crew ended the week in Vienna Park and Kingswood.

One crew began the week in the Kingswood subdivision and then moved into the Villages of Miami subdivision. On November 7th the crew completed the Villages of Miami. On November 8th and 9th the single crew worked in the Crains Run, Quail Creek and Chautauqua subdivisions. Offices are closed on November 10th to honor the Veterans Day Federal holiday.

Weekly Update November 13th, 2017


This week typically starts the largest volume of leaves to be collected for the season. Most of the varying tree species have dropped all leaves or are well into the process of leaf drop. Waxy leafed  tree species are typically the last to drop leaves. We ask residents to please be patient with potential delays in the collection process this round  and beyond due to the high volume of leaves and potentially adverse weather. Once crews have completed the first round, the process will accelerate.

Reminder: Leaves should not be placed in the roadway. This creates a safety hazard for traveling motorists and automobiles parked on top of leaf piles. Leaves should be placed at the backside of curbs, easily accessible to leaf collection equipment.

Two crews started back in the Huber subdivision for a second round of collection. A third crew was incorporated into the program starting November 14th. Crews completed Huber and moved into the Spring Valley subdivision on November 14th. Crews continued working in Spring Valley on November 15th and moved into Singing Hills on the 16th. The rainy weather has slowed operations, but crews do collect leave in all forms of inclement weather.  The 3 crews ended the week in the Vienna Park subdivision.

Weekly Update November 20th, 2017


The three crews began the week working to complete the Vienna Park subdivision and started Kingswood just north of the Dayton Mall. On November 22nd crews worked to complete Kingswood. Crews will not be working on November 23rd and 24th to break for the Thanksgiving holiday. Nearly all leaves are now on the ground.  We ask residents to please have all leaves curbside by November 27th.

Weekly Update November 27th, 2017


The three crews started the week in the Villages of Miami  subdivision and will follow the plat progression schedule outlined above.  Crains Run, Quail Creek and Chautauqua are next in line. Operations have slowed a bit due to the high volume of raked leaves.

We wanted to thank all residents choosing to mulch or compost leaves this year and encourage others to consider this option. Mulching supplies the turf with nutrients necessary for a healthy lawn, lowers program expenses, and accelerates the collection process. Mulching can be accomplished by raising the deck of the lawnmower and installing a blade designed for this activity.
