Street Maintenance

City street maintenance services provides a wide variety of basic road management and maintenance services including snow removal, seal-coating, patching, minor reconstruction, street sweeping, mowing roadsides, and cleaning culverts. Proper maintenance of city streets will extend the service life of the roadway surface and consequently reduce the need for costly road repair. The city attempts to fill street cracks to reduce the amount of deterioration due to weathering effects through maintenance programs.

Street sweeping

Street sweeping is performed in early spring to pick up sand and debris from the roadway that would otherwise end up in the storm system. In the fall, when the leaves have fallen from the trees, city crews will sweep affected streets to minimize leaves from going down storm drains.
