The Prairie Township Trustees are asking residents not to rake their leaves in the street for collection.

Rake leaves to the green space between the curb and sidewalk, if you have no sidewalk then rake leaves to the edge of the road berm.

Do not place leaves in the roadway or pile them around parked cars or fire hydrants

Leaf pickup will start in mid October Township wide, starting in the eastern portion of the township and working to the west.

Questions about the program can be directed to the Road Department, (614) 878-3316 or e-mail
