Spring Cleanup Week in the Town of Chesterton will be held next week, Monday, April 16, through Friday, April 20.

So Street Commissioner John Schnadenberg announced at the Town Council’s meeting Monday night.

As always, residents are asked to separate their curbside piles of brush and leaves, as two different pieces of apparatus are used in the collection. Piles which are not separated will be left at curbside.

While on the subject of spring, Schnadenberg noted that this past winter was significantly harsher than the previous one.

How much harsher?

In 2016-17, the Street Department was called out only half a dozen times to clear snow and ice. In 2017-18, the Street Department was called out 33 times and used 2,565 tons of salt.

“The Street Department did a superb job this winter,” said Member Jim Ton, R-1st. “Kudos to all the guys who put in the extra time. And to the leadership.”
