Brush is only picked up by the city during its Brush Pickup in the spring of the year. Brush that is piled upon the terrace at other times must be removed by the property owner and disposed of.
After receiving a complaint or observing a pile placed illegally, the Streets Division will send a letter to the owner of the property. Five business days after the date of this letter, brush piles may be picked up by city crews and the property owner assessed a minimum charge of $100. Subsequent violations will be picked up without further notice and the property owner assessed for each occurance.
