The Street Maintenance Division of Public Works is responsible for public roadway maintenance on city-maintained streets and alleys. In addition, this division is responsible for sidewalk and curb and gutter maintenance within the city limits (with the exception of those on privately maintained streets). When the Water and Sewer Maintenance Department creates cuts in the road surface or in sidewalks, curb and gutter, and driveway aprons, to repair water or sewer lines, or make new water/sewer connections, Street Maintenance is responsible for repairing these cuts to the asphalt and/or concrete.
This division performs the maintenance of the storm water drainage system within the city’s right of way.
Street Maintenance also plans and executes the city Winter Weather Plan to reduce the hazard to traffic created by snow and ice and debris from natural disasters.
