other tip: Thompson says to make sure any ponds are cleaned out prior to
wintertime because, if they aren’t clean and the pond freezes, methane gas can
develop and kill the fish.

Speaking of leaves, the city of Marietta (a.k.a. Tree City) says you can now drop off bagged leaves at one of four locations: Indian Acres Park, Buckeye Park, Lookout Park or the Greenleaf compost facility at 800 State Route 821.
Officials caution residents to not place anything but bagged leaves at these sites. Locations will be closed if they're abused by people dumping trash or other yard debris.
City crews will begin streetside leaf pickup on Monday, November 4. Leaves should be raked to between the curb and sidewalk for pick up. Crews will not collect bagged leaves.
If you have questions, call City Hall at 373-1387.
