Residents waiting for derecho debris pickup

It’s been three months since the derecho hit Cedar Rapids and we have not had one pickup for our tree or non-organic debris. I’m concerned that if we don’t get debris picked up before we get lots of snow that the safety of school buses, city buses, regular traffic and the snowplows will be in danger. When the snowplows go to clear our street, the snow will have no place to go and it may cause our debris to go into the street. Also recently there were city workers in Ellis Park sawing and taking away debris
