The Streets Maintenance Division
Streets Maintenance is responsible for most street and alley related maintenance including but not limited to concrete and asphalt repair, sign and street marking maintenance, street sweeping, alley and dirt road maintenance, and even some City building construction and demolition.
The Street Maintenance Department completed 1444 work orders for sweeping, 1060 work orders for pothole patching, 256 work orders for street sign maintenance, 5 work orders for street striping, and 1 work order for raised pavement markers, and purchased and laid approximately 205 tons of Hot Mix Asphalt, in 2017.
The Street Maintenance department was also involved in the demolition of the old Monkey Cage building at the zoo, which was completed within a short time frame, safely and at a significant cost savings to the City over contracting the work.
The Street Maintenance Department also designed, and with help from the Drainage Department constructed the Washington Park Covered Stage which considering its complexity was completed within a short time frame, safely and also at a significant cost savings to the City over contracting the work. The Street Maintenance Department also purchased and installed a Cart-A-Way Concrete Plant in the Public Works Yard. This plant will be used by all Public Works crews in order to save time and cost with small concrete projects and repairs.
This department of 7 full time regular employees plus 1 Manager, who also manages 3 other departments, completed a total of 3106 work orders in 2017.
