Clarification on spring clean-up day approval

It was reported in the March 9 edition of The Standard that the Waukon City Council approved May 6 as this year's spring clean-up day. That May 6 date was, indeed, approved, but the actual pick-up day for those spring clean-up items will be Saturday, May 7, beginning early in the morning.
Waukon City Clerk Al Lyon explained that the May 6 date was approved by the Council because it is advised that those spring clean-up items be placed at the curb by that Friday evening, May 6 in order to be in place for the early morning pick-up Saturday, May 7. Additional details for this year's spring clean-up day will be advertised in a future edition of The Standard as the event becomes closer.
