Leaf collection is in full swing in Decatur.
Leaves should be raked to curbside for collection. City officials said yard waste collection will end next Friday; after that date anyone with yard waste can place those items in the leaf piles or drop them off at the compost site behind the Riverside Center.
When setting out brush for collection, residents are asked to have those items in a separate pile away from the leaf piles.
The process of developing what is described as a powerful economic development tool continued moving toward reality on Tuesday night, getting a green light from Decatur City Council.
The tool is what is known as a Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District, which was sought by the city's new redevelopment commission.
