What is with people blowing there leaves into the street so the street floods and causes problems when peoples sewers backsups into there house maybe those people blowing LEAVES into the street should PAY TO REPLACE the belongings for these poor people as well as any mold and DR. bills they get from the sewer backing up.

It's just pure laziness, and the fact that they want their neighbors to see they have a leaf blower! No other explanation...

I may be wrong or they may not do it any longer but in the fall GC at one time said to put them there and they come buy and pick them up. Didnt really make sense to me because of the sewer problems GC has.

actually it's illegal to blow yard leaves and grass into the street. the best thing you can do is call your city inspector and report it. sad to say tell on your neighbors, but it will put a stop to it. they will get the choice of clean it off the street or pay a fine. either way the city itself will win.

I don't have a single tree in my yard, but last year i raked up 8 lawn bags full. did i complain? NO! why? because we are a neighborhood and it happens. We take pride in our neighborhood and so should everyone else. I would rather rake & bag them than have the water back up out the sewer when it rains again and have 2' of water on the steet. and besides, its good exercise anyway! and i get to watch my lil guys jump and play in them. The city will pick them up in you have them in the correct container (a lawn bag).

I can burn where I am, but don't because the neighbor is dying of emphysema. I use a leaf blower to push them up to the side of my house, then I pay neighborhood kids to bag them. They stink like hell when I dump them though. You have to dump them out of the bag at the leaf dump.

I see maybe 2 or 3 people on my street blow there leaves into the road. As soon as I drive by with my car, about half blow right back into the yard.

I don't know about laziness, but my leaf blower saves my back a hell of a lot better than the rake did.

@ DONE THAT, you are an idiot.

@ YUM, few people do things the right way anymore. I will say thanks to you for having the ambition of doing something just cause its correct.

@ sum1else, the lawn bags are a bit high cost, but like YUM, you do it right.

whats wrong with people?? Its not that hard.

I agree, and have commented on the potholes before. I think it is bullshit that they can't fix the problem! It's like driving a damn obstacle course coming and going from home....it sucks!! I say we picket the City Hall!!
