MOUNT VERNON — With the arrival of more typical fall weather, trees are finally shedding their leaves and the city will resume regular leaf pick-ups Monday, Street Superintendent Tom Hinkle reported at the mayor’s weekly press briefing.

Hinkle said three machines will be operating: Two will start on the main streets, then proceed to the side streets and outlying areas. The third will start on the side streets.
