Alley Maintenance

Alley maintenance includes grading alley ruts but the weeds and trash around the container are to be maintained by the homeowner of the property. Many complaints are made about the trash / items that neighbors set by the container. We refer complaints to Code Enforcement at (806) 296-1100.
