Did the mayor’s letter to Shop Local work?

It’s been over two weeks since we reported that Mayor Williams sent a letter to Shop Local telling them to put their ad bags on our porches instead of littering them on our sidewalks. Since then, we haven’t seen any ad bags delivered, and Bill Graff told us in a recent email he hasn’t, either. In fact, he said he wondered if “maybe the delivery people were fired after the mayor’s letter.” Is the problem fixed on your street?

Also, Relayman wrote to remind us that, according to Norwood’s Waste Management Guidelines, Rumpke will start picking up our yard waste at the curb for composting from April 1 through Nov. 30. Yard waste must be placed in brown paper bags at the curb on your garbage pick up day. Free bags are available to Norwood residents at the Norwood Health Dept. at 2059 Sherman Ave., phone # 458-4600. Just bring proof of residency.
