Street Department

Purpose:
The Street Department’s main purpose is to maintain all City streets and make all necessary repairs to the curb, gutter, and sidewalks.  To install and maintain all street marking signs, storm sewers, and all major excavation to keep all City streets safe from hazards.  This is done by keeping them patched and maintained on a daily basis, snow removal, mowing of all City right-of-ways and maintenance to the City parking lots, proper signage and vacuum leaves curbside in the fall to keep storm drains from clogging.

Goals:
1.  Maintain complete vehicle fleet to support street repair operations.
2.  Inspect and monitor all street department projects to ensure safety of workers and residents.
3.  Manage and control all storm water runoff to improve traffic study.
4.  Maintain a smooth pavement driving surface and extend the life of City streets.

REQUIREMENTS:

  1. All leaves/limbs must be placed at the curb or at your normal trash collection point by 5 a.m. of the scheduled curbside collection day or set out the night before.
  2. Tree trimmings must be no more than 6″ in diameter and 4′ in length, and in an amount not to exceed one 4’ long x 2’ high x 2’ wide bundle.  Bundles must be bound with rope or twine.  No plastic or wire ties acceptable.
  3. Leaves must be put in biodegradable “paper bags” or in containers that can be picked up and dumped by one person. Bags can be purchased at local hardware stores.
  4. No grass clippings will be picked up curbside.  Grass clippings can be deposited at the Recycle Center.
  5. LEAF VAC: Late fall of the year, when notice is given, leaves can be raked to the edge of your property; not in the street.

Crews will conduct two (2) rounds of leaf pickups for residents this year.  Click here for additional information.

Residents are asked to rake their leaves to the curb, but not place them in the streets, gutters or on sidewalks.

Residents are also asked to not park vehicles near the piles of leaves to make it easier for crews to pick up.  If vehicles are parked on or too close to the pile, those leaves will be left and picked up on the second round as long as the vehicle is moved.
