The vac is back.
After a short hiatus that began Oct. 31, the City of Mankato’s leaf vacuum resumed its task of clearing the streets of leaves last week, and not a moment too soon. High winds have blasted leaves from a lot of Mankato’s trees, turning lawns into a crunchy collection of dead leaves.
Leaves have also taken up a lot of available residential parking during the vacuum’s intermission. Only larger vehicles have challenged the large piles of leaves left along curbs awaiting the vacuum’s return.
The leaf vacuum will continue its duties the day after garbage pick-up each week until Thanksgiving or the snow flies.
Until Thanksgiving or snow, leaf vacuum to clean streets
