Beggars' Night - Sunday, October 30

This year, Beggars' Night falls on Sunday, October 30.  Be safe and have fun as you trick-or-treat through Johnston's neighborhoods from 6-8 pm!  Also be sure to post your best photos on the City of Johnston Facebook page and Twitter feed!  The Johnston Police Department offers these trick-or-treat safety tips:  Be sure older children take friends and younger children are accompanied by a trusted adult.  Teach children to never enter a home without prior permission from their parents.  Teach children to never approach a vehicle, occupied or not, unless they are with a parent or guardian.  Make sure your child wears reflective clothing.  Teach children to never approach a home that is not lit well both inside and out.


Fall Cleanup - November 3 through 5

Johnston’s fall clean up of branches and twigs will take place November 3 through 5. The hours to drop off (at no cost) will be 7 am until 3:30 pm on November 3 and 4, and 7 am until noon on November 5. Branches and twigs, no larger than 16 inches in diameter, may be dropped off at our Public Works facility, located at 6400 NW Beaver Drive. Leaves and grass clippings will not be accepted.

Meantime, Compost It! curbside pickup does allow leaves, grass, brush, flowers, vegetables and pumpkins and continues through November 29. To ensure collection, make sure you have plenty of Compost It! bags, or store brand bags and Compost It! stickers on hand to use. It’s the Compost It! name on the bag or sticker that covers the cost of collection.

Coffee with a Cop - Friday, November 4

Join us for Coffee with a Cop on Friday, November 4 from 7:30 to 9 am at the Hy-Vee Market Grille in Johnston. The goal of Coffee with a Cop is for police officers to get to know you, and for you to get to know our police officers. On the first Friday of every month, members of the Johnston Police Department will set aside time to meet in a neutral location to have a real conversation about issues that matter. Come with specific questions for our officers or just ready to share what's on your mind. In a short time, we hope to get to know you and discover mutual goals that will continue to grow and improve our community. Hy-Vee Market Grille is located at 5750 Merle Hay Road in Johnston.  We hope to see you there on Friday, November 4!
