Brush pickup lags behind

Storms are reeking havoc on trees in the city and McMinnville Public Works Department employees are feeling the effects. The amount of brush picked up has tripled since the onslaught began.“Just when we almost get close to getting caught up from the last storm, we get hit again,” said Public Works assistant director Brad Hennessee. “We are almost back on schedule, so I’m expecting another storm to move through.”Each time a storm moves through, brush from fallen trees and limbs is placed beside the street by city residents for pickup by Public Works.
