Be mindful of what you're flushing down the toilet


We know some of you may be...improvising. But this is a friendly reminder from your Municipal Utilities crews that the toilet is not a trash can. Please only flush toilet paper down the drains. Wipes, diapers, paper towels, cotton pads, sanitary products, coffee filters (😨) or anything else can clog the pipes and necessitate emergency repairs. These items should be placed in the trash.

Along those lines, at the grocery store please only buy what you need for your household. Hoarding toilet paper means it’s not available to others. Thanks for your cooperation!
