If you’ve got limbs littering your lawn and you live in the city limits of Williamstown, you’re in luck.

The Williamstown City Council has agreed to shred the limbs for free.

Downed limbs should be brought to the curb by Friday, Feb. 6.

The street department will pick up the limbs and branches by Tuesday, Feb. 10.

“I think this is an appropriate thing for the council to do,” said Williamstown Mayor Glenn Caldwell. “This is a good service to the community.”

In other business, the council tabled an ordinance that would raise the fee from $350 or $450 to $525 for opening and closing a grave at the Williamstown Cemetery.

“I’d like to look into this further to see what it actually costs the city,” said Stanley Woodyard, council member.
