HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I hope you enjoyed the holidays with family and friends.  As your District 1 Alder, I am looking forward to representing you as we continue to be responsive to both district and city government issues. During 2015, I received many calls from residents with questions related to navigating through City government. The City website: cityofmadison.com provides much information about city services as well as updates on weekly committee meetings, activities and schedules. As District 1 Alder, my job is to assist residents in my district to navigate through city government and to connect you with the department(s) responsible for providing answers to your questions or concerns and also to follow-up. Please encourage your neighbors to sign-up for both of these resources. This is an example of the website content:

Christmas Tree Collection

Tuesday, December 29, 2015 - 4:46pm

Starting Monday, January 4th the Streets Division will begin collecting Christmas trees. Most trees will be processed at the curb with on-street chippers. These machines are expensive and can be damaged when foreign material enters the machine. To protect this equipment and the safety of our workers we ask that all residents follow these rules;

Remove all tree stands regardless of whether they are metal or wood.
Remove all light strings, ornaments and other metal objects.
Remove any tree bags.
Place trees at the street edge only. 
If trees become buried under snow residents are asked to dig out trees.
Wreaths, evergreen rope, garlands, and boughs will NOT be collected with holiday trees. These items should be placed with your tan refuse cart. 

Each neighborhood is scheduled for two collections. Regardless of which day your refuse is collected, have your holiday tree out by 7:00 a.m. on the following days;
FIRST ROUND Monday January 4
SECOND ROUND Tuesday January 19
Trees placed out on these days will be collected sometime during the two-week cycle, WEATHER PERMITTING. Snow and ice control will take priority.
Christmas Tree Drop Off Sites

You may also bring your Christmas trees to our drop off sites at:

West: 1501 W. Badger Rd. East: 4602 Sycamore Ave

The sites open winter hours: Monday - Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Recorded information on Christmas tree collection is available by calling 267-2088.  You can also visit the Streets Division's web site at www.cityofmadison.com/streets.
