City Services

There are numerous services, amenities, and benefits offered by the City of Leslie that have become very popular with our residents, as well as some traditional events. Some of these are shown below, and help make “Leslie, the Place To Be”! 

Curbside Brush Chipping

Brush and Limbs will be chipped and removed by the City crew. Especially after a windstorm, this is a valuable service. The primary use of brush chipping is for clearing storm damage. This service is not to be used when homeowners hire an outside service to remove trees in their yard, the contractor should remove the brush themselves. Place brush and limbs (no larger than 5 inches in diameter) with the cut end toward the street. Brush pick up is scheduled the first full week of each month for brush that is at the curb that Monday morning. This service is not guaranteed as many other city services are of higher priority and take precedence over brush pick up. Do not mix other yard waste with limbs.

Curbside Leaf Pick-Up

Each spring and fall, usually during the months of April and October, the City provides curbside leaf pick-up. Again, homeowners are asked to rake their leaves into the very edge of their street, in a long narrow row. Do not leave them in bags. Call City Offices to verify timing on leaf pick-up. NO BRUSH.


  • Russell Park: Located on North Main Street, this park offers a Playscape for the youngsters, restrooms, picnic tables and grills. Also there are two pavilions that can be reserved at a discounted rate for City residents.
  • Tuttle Park: The Veterans Memorial Park, located at the corner of W. Bellevue and Armstrong Streets, is a picturesque corner with a lovely gazebo ideal for a small group or pictures. The gazebo can also be reserved for a special occasion such as a small wedding, at discounted rates for City residents.
  • Ball fields: Several ball fields are available for league play, and when not scheduled and reserved, are available for the general public.
  • Walking: Sidewalks throughout our community provide safe, well-lit opportunity for the walkers. Also the “Trailway” stretches from W. Bellevue Street along Hull Rd. all the way out to the Leslie High School.
