From Staff Reports
The rains the past few weeks have brought much needed moisture to the area, including Slaton.
They have also caused a lot of grass and weeds to grow in the City, leading to residences violating several of the ordinances regarding yards.
The City is encouraging everyone to mow and clean their yards and alleyways to alleviate any potential fire and safety hazards.
It is also opening up its recycle center to allow folks to drop off their no longer used items that can be reused.
The recycle center will be open Aug. 9-21 for the clean up.
Hours during this time will be:
• Sunday closed
• Monday 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
• Tuesday regular hours
• Wednesday 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
• Thursday regular hours
• Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
• Saturday regular hours
