    Reader Poll

    Rock Falls is considering a ban on leaf burning. Should the city finally take that step?
    Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
    No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
