REMINDER: Do not place anything in alleys. These city easements are for utility services, city equipment and emergency equipment only. To avoid a $150 fine, please park and place all personal items on your own property, not in alleys. Storing debris on streets or alleys is a violation of city code 3-1-13:A.
