Citywide Maintenance

Citywide Maintenance

The Citywide Maintenance Department works tirelessly to perpetuate the community’s attractive appearance while improving safety and sustainability.

They work closely with the Parks & Recreation Department, Engineering & Traffic Department, and Marion Utilities to provide a multitude of services across the city.

Programs & Services

Leaf Pickup

The City is saving taxpayer dollars with an efficient leaf pickup method. In 2016, we implemented a system where only bagged leaves are picked up. Residents are not permitted to rake leaves to the curb or into the streets. Leaf pickup takes place on the same day that Marion Utilities conducts trash pickup. Bagged leaves are only picked up in paper yard waste bags.

Yard Waste Collection 

Citywide Maintenance collects bagged leaves or grass clippings as well as larger yard waste items such as limbs and brush throughout the year. Residents may either bring yard waste items to Citywide Maintenance or call and have these items picked up. This service helps residents keep their properties maintained all year round.
