THE CITY OF CLEARWATER is no longer accepting brush near the maintenance building on Co. Rd. 75. The maintenance crew is picking up brush the first Wednesday of each month with curbside pick-up. The site will be used for installation of a solar energy system. Residents can still drop off leaves and grass cuttings at the compost site behind the maintenance.
Last month, the City of Clearwater closed its brush dropoff site near the maintenance building on Co. Rd. 75. The site had been an issue in recent years because whenever the city burned the brush, smoke from the pile was traveling across the road into neighbors’ homes.

The Clearwater City Council last week agreed to help a dental business relocate in the Clearwater Depot building at 340 South Walnut Street. Wayne Elam from Commercial Realty Solutions told the council he had a purchase agreement for the property but some language in a deed restriction was holding up the closing.
