City of Leesburg to close offices 
due to Hurricane Ian

           Due to Hurricane Ian, City of Leesburg offices will close at 12 noon on Tuesday, September 27. Offices will reopen when weather permits. Closings include City Hall, Leesburg Public Library, Resource Center and the Leesburg gymnasium. 

            Due dates for utility bills that are due during this period will be rolled until offices reopen. Late fees have also been suspended.

           There will be no garbage, yard waste, bulk items, or recycling collection on Thursday and Friday, September 29th and 30th. It is anticipated that recycling and residential and commercial solid waste picks up will resume Monday, if conditions permit.  

            The Public Works Department requests that all residents secure trash cans and trash in order to ensure your safety. Please remove all trash and trash cans from the roadside. Please do not place yard waste at the curb at this time. High winds cause loose items, such as trash cans and tree limbs, to become projectiles that can cause property damage and personal injury.

            Sand bags are available until 6:00pm today at the City’s Susan Street Complex, located at 940 Susan Street, Leesburg. Residents must bring their own shovels and bag their own sand. Sandbags are limited to 10 per household.
