Due to the threat of bad weather and icy roads, the City of Batesville and Batesville Water Utility Administrative offices will open at 10:00 a.m. Friday, Dec 6th, weather permitting.
City Sanitation Department will is still planning to pick up garbage but not until city streets are passable. All special trucks, such as limbs, leaves and junk, will only run if time permits after regular garbage is picked up.
The City of Batesville Sanitation Department will be running the leaf truck following regular garbage routes as of Tuesday, November 19th. The plan is for the truck to start at the beginning of each garbage route and continue as far as they can in one day. The next week they will come back and pickup where they left off. This should help keep our employees from having to run from one side of town to the other and help assure that everyone leaves will be picked up in a timely manner. Please be patient with our drivers….there are a lot of leaves all over town and they will work as quickly as possible to get them picked up. PLEASE do not pile leaves with sticks and garbage. The leaf machine is not designed to grind larger sticks and branches and small trash items such as bags, cups or cans. THANK YOU
