Frequently Asked Questions

How is AlertLJ different than the Junaluskan's Email Service or Haywood Alerts?
A person signs up for AlertLJ to receive urgent news and notices from Assembly Public Works that may specifically affect residents and customers located within and just outside the immediate Lake Junaluska Assembly community. The Junaluskan's Email Service, faithfully managed and maintaned by Junaluskans volunteer Frank Stith, provides a broader and more interpersonal community connection, delivering a wide variety of news, updates and happenings around the lake. Haywood Alerts is a county-wide emergency alert program maintained and funded by Haywood County government, which provides emergency alerts regarding severe weather, police activity, road closures, AMBER/Senior alerts, and other vital information. To stay well informed and aware of what's going on in and around Lake Junaluska, we encourage residents and customers to sign up for all three programs.

Spring Leaf Collection

Leaf vacuum service will be offered the week of April 26th through April 30th. After this time, APW will place the equipment out-of-service until routine leaf collection resumes in the fall, and leaves will need to be bagged before collection.

To participate in this final round of Spring leaf vacuuming, please place leaves in a pile along the street edge in a manner that will not block traffic flow, hydrants, or ditches. Also, do not cover utility boxes as this will interfere with water meter reading. To ensure a pile is not missed, residents may request a work order by calling the Public Works office at 828-452-5911.
