We have received the following update from Councillor Ras with respect to the vacuum leaf program. 

We wanted to let you know that as we have some favourable weather forecasted next week and still have some remaining hours with our contractor in our Vacuum Leaf Collection Program (VLCP), we will be extending our VLCP into next week.

We will focus on the Yellow zone, but we anticipate being able to go through some of the Blue and Green zones as required during this time. The plan for now is to continue working on the VLCP Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We will assess the volumes being collected, the weather forecast and our budgets to see if the program will be extended any longer than noted above.

 We will also have most of our City vehicles changed from leaf collection into winter maintenance however, we will keep a few of our crews set up to continue with the VLCP.
