Department Manager Jerry Smith says, It's our Number 1 priority to serve the public - keeping our streets safe and well-maintained. Transportation on our city streets is an important part of our daily life, as we travel to work, school, shopping, and other destinations. Our well-trained employees are working hard to serve the public professionally and efficiently.
The Public Works Department's mission is to provide ongoing maintenance services necessary to protect the City's more than 120 miles of roads. Examples of maintenance services include:
Curbs and gutters
Fleet maintenance on all of DPW’s
Installation and/or repair of potholes and other street failures
Parks and Recreation and Sanitation vehicles and equipment
Removal of tree limbs over and in the right of ways
Routine maintenance and repair service to existing drainage systems within the City's right-of-way to minimize flooding and property damage
Small drainage repairs
Salting/Cleaning City Streets
Limited use of salt on secondary and side roads
Only key areas and intersections are salted during heavy snow events
When street sweeping, please keep all vehicles off the street when possible to allow proper cleaning of the street.
If you notice a pothole, damaged road sign, playground issues or other unsafe condition on a City street, please call to report the problem. The Public Works Department appreciates your help. Please call 931-762-3255.
