City leaf collection slated to begin Monday

The annual spring leaf collection program by the City of Fredericksburg is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 30.

During this program, residents are encouraged to gather leaves from their property and rake them to the street.

According to the city’s street department, the following guidelines will ensure pick up:

• Rake leaves onto the street, 12 inches from the curb;

• Do not rake limbs, twigs, wire, rocks, bricks or other debris along with the leaves for collection. Any items other than leaves that are picked up will damage the leaf collection equipment and will not be picked up for that reason. Residents who are unable to remove the debris from a leaf pile are asked to call the City of Fredericksburg Street Department to make arrangements for a special pick up using a loader and dump truck. There will be a minimum $100 charge for this service;

Trustees eye dual-credit tuition help

By Ken Esten Cooke —

A new community college partner is likely on the way, and so is financial help for high school students who want to knock out college hours.

A proposal to assist students to take dual-credit courses at Central Texas College (CTC) was discussed by trustees of the Fredericksburg Independent School District on Monday. If approved by the Texas Legislature, CTC will take over as a local higher education partner from Austin Community College in the fall.

Supt. Eric Wright said financial assistance from the district would range from half to 90 percent, depending on family income.
