Wipes Clog PipesPlease watch what you flush!

Just a reminder from the Public Works Department:  With the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) concerns at a high, many people are using wet wipes and paper towels and may be tempted to flush them.

Please, DO NOT FLUSH WET WIPES of any kind, NOR PAPER TOWELS down the toilet. Neither breaks down as sufficiently as toilet paper and could cause backups for the city’s sewer system. Even wipes that claim to be “flushable” are not safe.
