Reminder: Basketball Hoops 

A friendly reminder from Public Works: Please remove basketball hoops from sidewalks, cul-de-sacs, the end of your driveway, etc. In many neighborhoods, basketball hoops are making it difficult for our leaf/brush crews to navigate the route and make turns. Also, colder weather is coming...We don't want to damage your hoops with snow plows this winter! Thank you for your cooperation.

The Loveland-Symmes Fire Department reminds residents to check their smoke alarms. If you are unable or unsure how to test your smoke detectors, LSFD will come to your home and perform a test, inspect their location, and/or replace defective batteries and detectors.
