Books in the Barbershop

Alderman Cavalier Johnson presents the Books in the Barbershop Program

Part of what we Alderpersons strive to do is enact policies which have an impact on our community. I was proud to partner with a number of community partners and local barbershops to create Books in the Barbershop. The program is designed to build and provide small libraries for kids who are in barbershops. Right now we have two locations, but we are always looking to add more.  If you would like to participate or assist please email our office at

Brush should NOT be placed in the street

Weeds and branches from trees and bushes should be called in for a special pickup (may include a fee). Grass clippings and large brush piles can be taken to one of the city’s Self Help Centers for free. Brush should NOT be placed in the street or on the curb. Placing brush in the street causes sewer catch basins to be clogged, which leads to ponding and flooding on neighborhood streets when it rains.

The city has two Self-Help locations – 3879 W. Lincoln Ave. and 6660 N. Industrial Rd. – where residents can bring larger amounts of brush as well as other trash for disposal. Between mid-October and mid-November, residents may place small amounts of soft brush (annuals, clippings, weeds, etc.) on top of leaf piles at the curb for pickup by city crews.

To find out more about disposing of brush, about Self-Help Center hours, or to request a special pickup (may include a fee), please call the city Unified Call Center at 414-286-CITY(2489).

Have You Experienced a Basement Backup?
