Linden is working hard! We are still digging out of the backlog of work that built up while we were fixing storm damage. Lots of broken water/sewer lines plus park and street damage. We had 30+ mature trees blow down in the park. We will be working to get the park cleared and then mowed. We can accept tree trimmings at the dump if you call City Hall and set up a time.
