Refuse changes

The city really wants you to remember to point the arrow on your trash can towards the street as the new  automated pickup system only works if you point them that way. Also put the cans on a hard surface with at least 3 feet of space between them and the next closest thing that might block the grapple from picking it up.

Outside Dining

Following up on the Governors announcement that outside dining would fit within stage 3 of Reopen Illinois, the city will work with local restaurants to find ways to increase the availability of outside eating spots. Maybe close down and detour traffic around N. Washington and West Jackson and make the streets available as expanded dining areas during specific evenings. The city could also designate the parking spaces behind assorted bars and restaurants on S. Illinois as available for outside dining and allow open carry of alcohol within those areas.

Musician Question

I do not follow the Carbondale musical scene, though I have always been amazed at the number of bands and performers that have made Carbondale their home base over the years.  So the question came up, which of Carbondale's current musicians would other musicians in the city or region most like to play with? Let me know who you think in the comments.

Cambria Road

Apparently some sort of construction on Cambria Road heading north from Highway 13 as there is a detour sign posted. Interesting thing about the detour is that it requires the driver to detour clear into Carbondale and take Hwy 51 northbound to get to where you want to go on the north side of whatever is blocking the highway.
