MPD Receives Governor's Safety Award
The Maryville Police Department took home several awards, including the Director’s Cup for highest point total overall, from the Tennessee Lifesavers Conference held by the Governor’s Highway Safety Office. Agencies across the state participated in the 10th Annual Law Enforcement Challenge by documenting their efforts and results in traffic safety for the calendar year.
The awards are based on results of Maryville’s 2013 traffic safety program. Total carshes in Maryville were reduced by 4 percent, injury crashes by 23 percent and fatal crashes by 34 percent. The crash-to-injury ration was 11.85 percent, down from 14.77 percent in 2012.
The number of children injured in crashes was down by 42 percent, and the number of drivers older than 50 who were injured was reduced by 10 percent.
Maryville Police was awarded first place in the category for agencies employing between 46 and 75 officers and took home the Director’s Cup for highest point total across all 13 categories of agencies.
Lt. Michael K. Braden received the Governor’s Highway Safety Office Director’s Award for his unwavering dedication and outstanding commitment to highway safety.

Leaf Collection Begins October 27
Autumn leaf collection will begin Monday, October 27th with the Blue Zone. The schedule for collection of leaves follows the City’s brush and large item collection schedule, which is performed by zones. Residents have a color-coded decal on top of their residential garbage container that includes their zone collection schedule. The green zone pick up begins the first day of each month; the yellow zone begins the eighth day of each month; the red zone begins the fifteenth day of each month and the blue zone begins the twenty-second day of each month. If these days fall on a weekend, the pick-up begins the following Monday.
The Engineering & Public Works Department reminds citizens that leaves should be raked to the curb but not into the street. Raking leaves into the street clogs the stormwater system. Leaves should always be separated from other debris. The department encourages residents to place their leaves out the night before the zone collection begins because crews begin working early in the morning. Depending on the weather, Maryville leaf collection should continue through December. Call 273-3302 for further details or questions relating to leaf collection.
