Please Be Considerate When Moving Near the Street

Grass clippings

When mowing your grass near the street, please be careful not to blow the cut clippings into the roadway.  This causes a serious safety hazard for runners and bicyclists as the clippings can be very slippery.  Furthermore, the clippings will eventually wash into the city’s storm drain system, where it can cause backups and blockages. On top of these very good reasons not to deposit grass clippings in the street, it simply creates an unsightly condition in Montgomery’s neighborhoods.  So please be careful not to blow grass clippings into the roadway, and if you do happen to inadvertently get clippings in the street, please be courteous and clean them up.
