BATESVILLE, Ind. Leaf Collection Begins

The Batesville Street Department will begin the process of curb-side collection of leaves on October 25 and will conclude in December. On average, it takes between two to four weeks to make a complete circuit of the city.
Residents are advised to assist by following these simple guidelines to ensure a successful leaf collection program:

• Place leaves as close to the edge of the street as possible without placing leaves in the street.
• Be sure that leaves are free of any other debris and cars are not blocking the path of the leaf machine.
• All loose leaves are picked up on street side only.
• No loose leaves are collected in alleyways.

Please note that these services are only provided to residents within the City of Batesville. Collection schedules will only be interrupted in the event of severe weather.

Please visit the city’s website https://batesvilleindiana.us/departments/street-department/leaf-limb/ for more information on leaf and limb collection.

 

Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra

The skies above Batesville will sparkle with the brilliant display of fireworks while the patriotic sounds of the Indianapolis Symphony fill the Bill Gillespie Soccer Park, 922 Delaware Road, once again during this year’s Star-Spangled Indianapolis Symphony event. The city of Batesville, the Batesville Area Arts Council, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and Hillenbrand will host the third event in the series on Thursday, July 1 beginning at 8 PM. Gates open at 6:00 p.m.

The first two concerts in the three-year series each attracted nearly 3,000 people to Batesville. The pandemic delayed the 2020 event.

The free event is open to the public and will feature a world-class symphony performance paired with a professional fireworks display. The program will include patriotic favorites and orchestra showpieces led by ISO Resident Conductor Jacob Joyce and featuring ISO concertmaster Kevin Lin as soloist.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their families and picnic dinners and enjoy the show.
