Due to rain, freezing temperatures and other unforeseen circumstances, the City of New Haven will extend its leaf pick up schedule until the end of this year throughout the City of New Haven (weather permitting). An extension of the schedule includes all homes
within the city. Utility Superintendent, Dave Jones said, “Leaves fell very late this year. Additionally, inclement weather has made it more difficult for our equipment to pick up wet, frozen leaves which has put our crews behind in getting all leaves collected. However, we will continue to get leaves picked up by the end of the year, as weather permits.”

Leaves must be raked onto the park strip between the sidewalk and curb (not in the street), and away from street signs, poles, mailboxes and parked cars. Leaves that are picked up are recycled into compost, which is available free to the public at the Utility Complex located at 2201 Summit Street. Bagged leaves WILL NOT be accepted as this will inhibit the pick up process and the bags are not conducive to composting.
For more information, please contact Utility Superintendent Dave Jones at 414-9097.

SafeWise is happy to announce the release of the annual 20 Safest Cities in Indiana 2018 Report.

New Haven made the list at #20 this year!

Here is all the information you’ll need to share this achievement with your community:

What? SafeWise released the 20 Safest Cities in Indiana for 2018.

When? This report was released on November 6th, 2018.

Where? Check out the full rankings here:

How? To compile this report, SafeWise analysts reviewed the most recent 2016 FBI crime statistics and population data. Our evaluation is based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape and robbery) in each city per 1000 people. If there was a tie, we also factored in the number of property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and car theft).

Cities that fell below identified population thresholds or failed to submit a complete FBI crime report were excluded from the ranking system.

Who is SafeWise? SafeWise is an online safety resource that advocates for consumers and helps families and communities make informed decisions. Our mission is to provide helpful reviews, insightful tips, comprehensive resources, and valuable safety information in one convenient place. SafeWise regularly releases “Safest Cities” reports, and other reports on a variety of safety topics to raise awareness about the state of safety in our country.

Quote: SafeWise security analyst Alexia Chianis says, “Indiana’s twenty safest cities vary considerably in size and location, but they’re all working hard to keep crime under control. The cities on our list experienced an average violent crime rate nearly 85% lower than the state, according to the most recent FBI crime report. We were also impressed that cities which didn’t make our list, like Indianapolis, are leveraging new initiatives such as OneCOP to help improve police-citizen communication and reduce crime.”
