- Reduce traffic hazards due to build up of sand on roadways, not to mention beautify city streets;
- Prevent our sewer and storm drains from clogging with dirt or debris and create flooding or back up conditions;
- Lessen the risk of a health hazard due to dust in the air.
Our sweeping season is generally from late March to late November, weather and temperature permitting. Our goal is to get to all City streets at least once per month and high traffic areas at least once every other week. If you feel your street has been missed, please feel free to fill out a work order request to submit to our office.
Litter Pick up is mainly a spring/summer operation for our department.
ROAD SIDE MOWING
Road side mowing is generally done on the outskirts of our downtown area. We try and concentrate on corners and intersections first and work our way around.
Public works does our best to keep our eyes everywhere, but that's not always possible or feasible. Should you notice a pothole please advise our office immediately so we can properly repair it before it causes significant damage to someone's vehicle. You may use our online work order request form for this purpose. State law does allow towns/cities a mandatory 24 hour grace period to fix a pothole upon notification before reimbursing anyone for damages they may have incurred by hitting a pothole.
