Town of Smyrna
Helping to Keep You
The Town of Smyrna has an ordinance which prohibits blowing grass clippings into the street.
While this ordinance does help keep the streets clean, that is not its main purpose.
This ordinance is intended to reduce the amount of debris that enters the storm water systems. This debris reduces the capacity of the storm water drainage system which causes road flooding and increases maintenance costs on the system.
The goal of this ordinance is to gain citizen support in avoiding these costs and negative issues.
