    Lawn and Leaf Bag Notice 

    Dear Residents:

    Finally, we are starting to see the beautiful weather approaching.  After a very long and cold winter, we are all excited to see Spring arrive. As your City, we are working hard to address the ills of this winter by, filling the thousands of potholes, fixing water break sites, repairing grassy areas damaged from plowing, and countless other repairs that need our attention directly related to the cold weather.  I understand many of these repairs cause an inconvenience to our residents and for that, we apologize.  I assure you, we will do our best to get the job done with very few interruptions.

    As we work diligently to address all of the winter issues,  like a flash, we have to move towards our Spring duties, mainly grass bags. Perhaps, the most significant challenge of being the Mayor is to meet the needs of all our residents promptly.

    One of the most significant challenges we have to face is workforce vs. demand. On any given day 50% of our staff is dedicated to trash and recycling, leaving the other 50% to handle all other jobs, and there are many. So, to provide the very best service and have continuity, we start picking up grass bags on a scheduled run during the second week of May when we hire our summer help employees. Grass bags are a full-time job in of itself, and requires us to dedicate several employees a day from early Spring to end of Fall.

    Until then, we will do our very best to have trucks out collecting your grass bags every chance we can. Remember we will always accept them at DPW free of charge.  I know this may not be the perfect solution, but we are trying our very best to address your needs in the best possible way.

    As always we are Cohoes Proud, we are working tirelessly to meet your demands and provide you the services you have come to expect.
