Public Works is making headway in cleaning up tree debris on city streets, but much work remains. Crews are working in 17 sectors around the city, and assessment teams are reporting and prioritizing hazards, including in parks and off-street bike paths.
To report a hazard, call Public Works at 541-682-4800. To report down power lines, call EWEB at 541-484-2300.
Debris on private property should not be placed in the street. View tips on disposing of brush on private property and a tip about free firewood.
The ice-snow emergency parking ban was lifted Monday. However, sidewalks and onstreet bike lanes may still have slush accumulations.
Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has issued an wind advisory that includes the Eugene area starting at 10 p.m. through 6 a.m. Wednesday. Use caution around trees damaged by Saturday’s ice storm. Say well clear of trees that may leaning or that have loose hanging limbs.
Residents whose homes remain without electricity can find warmth and power outlets at City facilities. During regular business hours, City of Eugene Community Centers and Libraries are good places to warm up if you are without power. You can also charge up your cell phones, tablets or laptops. No hot water? The locker rooms of City’s two pools are available for showers during regular business hours.
