In an effort to clean up Brazil, Mayor Arthur has increased heavy trash pick- ups to five stops every week. Anyone that needs items picked up needs to contact the city street department at 448-8501, but items are not to be placed in the tree row until 6 p.m. the day before pick up.
"As a city we can do little things to make Brazil more eye appealing," Mayor Arthur said.
The ordinance states, "No person shall place, put or deposit any trash, garbage, waste or rank elements, either placed in any type of container or bag, or any empty trash container or bag in any tree row, street or on the persons property or residence in such a manner that is visible from a public street, except for the designated collection day each week or the designated heavy trash collection day or no earlier than 6:00 the day before any such designate collection day."
Any person violating this ordinance shall be subject to a civil penalty of $50 as provided in section 93.99.
