Department of Public Works is made up of 30 employees who help to keep
our city clean. The following list is made up of just a part of the
responsibilities of this department.
- Maintaining clean streets
- Street repair
- Cleaning ditches
- Pickup of solid waste from curbs
- Maintaining street lights
- Clearing drainage areas
- Pest Control
Citizens can request large item pickup and special circumstance
solid waste pickup by calling the office of Public Works.
Leaves and limbs should be separated and placed on the
edge of the property for pickup. Sweeps of the city trucks take place
on a regular basis in all areas of the city in order to clear natural
waste from the streets in a timely manner.
The department services and repairs all equipment owned
by the city such as police cars, fire vehicles, water department vehicles
and city park equipment.
Charley Clayborn and Jason Larry work across the city
removing enormous amounts of leaves during the winter months. They ask
that you rake your leaves to the edge of your lawn for pickup keeping
them separate from limbs and other solid waste.
