Happy Halloween! With Hurricane Sandy behind us and fair weather in the forecast, we have decided that traditional, house-to-house trick or treating should go on tonight as planned. However, the downtown trick or treating, sponsored by the Melrose Chamber of Commerce, has been rescheduled to Friday, November 2, from 3:30-5 p.m.
This is a green recycling week.
Trash and recycling are on a regular schedule.
Yard waste will be picked up curbside this week.
Tree and park crews are cleaning up broken tree limbs and downed branches.
Sewer crews are cleaning catch basins and grates, and pumping out the City Hall parking lot.
The cemetery crew is cleaning up after the storm.
Tomorrow is an early release day for the elementary schools. Lunch will be served, and school will get out at 12:30 p.m.
Share your thoughts on the next principal of Melrose High School with Superintendent of Schools Cyndy Taymore in a meeting tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. in the Resource Center of Melrose High School.
