City crews will make two passes to collect leaves from neighborhoods, street by street, based on the schedule available at southbendin.gov/fallreleaf. Residents WILL NOT need to call to request a pickup. All dates on the schedule are weather permitting and subject to change. Residents are advised to visit southbendin.gov/fallreleaf for the most up-to-date schedule.Leaf pickup can be viewed in real-time via the Fall ReLeaf Live Tracker on the City’s homepage at southbendin.gov. The online map shows the status of different zones and leaf pickup on individual streets. Residents can type in their address or zoom in to find their streets. Note: The map will take a few seconds to load the data.Below are guidelines that residents are asked to follow for the Fall ReLeaf program.Leaves need to be raked to the tree lawn area, NOT into the street, by 6:00 a.m. on the pickup date to ensure they are picked up.Leaves need to be free of sticks, trash and other debris or they may not be picked up.Cars should not be parked on top or in front of leaf piles along curb lines, as this hampers leaf collection.Leaf burning is prohibited and is a violation of City ordinance.Residents participating in the City’s Yard Waste program can also put leaves in yard waste bins. The program offers weekly collection and runs through the end of November. Residents can call 311 with any questions.

Renewed Hope for Broward Family of FBI Agent Bob Levinson Held in Iran

first_imgU.S. officials for years said Levinson was working for a private client on his trip to Iran. In December 2013, The Associated Press reported that the ex-agent had actually been on a mission for CIA analysts who had no authority to run spy operations.Since his disappearance, photos and video of Levinson in an orange jumpsuit emerged in 2010 and 2011. His family is suing Iran in U.S. federal court under the allegation that the Iranian government kidnapped him.FBI posterIran has acknowledged there is an open Revolutionary Court case involving Levinson, but a foreign ministry spokesman said Sunday that the case was a “missing person” filing — not a sign that the ex-agent was being prosecuted.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced last week that the State Department would offer $20 million on top of a previously posted $5 million reward for information on Levinson’s case.“The Trump administration has made clear that the regime in Iran must release all missing and wrongfully detained Americans, including Robert Levinson, Xiyue Wang, Siamak Namazi, and others,” Pompeo said in a statement. “We will not rest until they are reunited with their families.”Dan Levinson said his family has never given up hope Levinson’s alive even though they haven’t heard from him in 12 years, making him the longest-held hostage in U.S. history. The Coral Springs family of former FBI agent Bob Levinson held captive in Iran for over a decade, is emboldened in their fight for his release.Last week, the U.S. government announced a $20-million reward for information leading to his location and safe return.That’s on top of the $5-million FBI award.FILE – In this March 6, 2012, file photo, an FBI poster showing a composite image of former FBI agent Robert Levinson, right, of how he would look like now after five years in captivity, and an image, center, taken from the video, released by his kidnappers, and a picture before he was kidnapped, left, displayed during a news conference in Washington. Iran is acknowledging for the first time it has an open case before its Revolutionary Court over the 2007 disappearance of a former FBI agent on an unauthorized CIA mission to the country. In a filing to the United Nations, Iran said the case over Robert Levinson was “on going,” without elaborating. The Associated Press obtained the text of the filing Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File)President Donald Trump on Sunday used Twitter to urge Iran to turn over former FBI agent Robert Levinson, who disappeared in 2007 on an unauthorized CIA mission.“If Iran is able to turn over to the U.S. kidnapped former FBI Agent Robert A. Levinson, who has been missing in Iran for 12 years, it would be a very positive step,” the president wrote. last_img read more
