So the Town of Cornelius decides to eliminate curb-side leaf pick up, but relents when we lowly taxpayers complain. Instead they provide such lousy service people give up on it anyway. It’s Dec. 15, there isn’t a leaf left on a tree anywhere and the leaves on our street have been picked just once. You can’t drive down Bethel Church Road without swerving into the oncoming lane to avoid piles of leaves. Gutters are clogged and our street floods whenever it rains. Cars have ground piles of leaves into ugly matted piles of mulch.
