On average the Street Department sweeps 900 lane miles a week. City streets are swept weekly after spring clean-up, weather permitting. Keeping the gutter line clean helps beautify the neighborhoods and maintain our storm water drainage system.
Last year the Street Department swept a total of 23,000 lane miles and over 10,000 cubic yards of debris off city streets.

Storm Sewer CleaningThe Street Department cleans all catch basins in the city once a year. This helps our storm sewer system run at full capacity in the event of a heavy or prolonged rain event. Cleaning these catch basins on a regular basis also keeps contaminants from entering our water ways. Residents are reminded not to dump foreign matter into the catch basins as doing so will plug the catch basin and cause street flooding in rain events.
Pot Hole RepairThe Street Department fixes potholes on a regular basis in the summer - weather permitting. On the average, the Street Department uses about 500 tons of hot and cold mix a season. Residents are encouraged to call in bad pot holes so they can be addressed as soon as possible. Please use the contact information provided below to report bad pot holes.
