The approximately 30 employees at the Public Works / Street Department are a team of hardworking men and women who have dedicated themselves on a daily basis to serving those who live in our community. Some of the many tasks they are responsible for include:

  • Residential curbside trash, yard waste, recycling, and appliance pick-up
  • Installation and repair of storm lines
  • Stoplight repairs
  • Construction of curbs, sidewalks, and roads
  • Sidewalk replacement program
  • Street cleaning
  • Snow plowing of streets and alleys
  • Patching roads
  • Maintaining city-owned parking lots
  • Running the fully self-maintained repair shop

When you’re driving down the road, and road construction signs start to appear...
Don’t think pessimistically, don’t think now I’ll be stuck here...
Take a minute to slow down, appreciate the guys in vests...
They’re just doing their job, trying to make your travel the best!
Whether it be patching a hole, paving a road, or removing a tree...
They’re just trying to keep your travel safe, from point A to point B...
So give the car a brake, the workforce a little credit where it’s due...
After all they want to go home safely at night, the same way as you...
From a hard hat, to a sledge hammer, whatever the situation may need...
Working around traffic, can be far from a dream....
You may not see their face, not know them by name...
However, the benefits of their work you share just the same...
A lot can be unnoticed, maybe patches in between...
But things just got improved, there wasn’t just a flagger on the scene...
Construction workers may be easy to spot, but subtle to approve of...
In the end they’re just trying to keep up, the city that they love...
So when you see the orange signs, and the slight delay that may be such a pain...
These men & women are just trying to better the drive, and give it a little gain...
