The Streets and Transportation Division is responsible for the sweeping of all city streets.
The sweeping of city streets will start in early spring, after the snow has melted away from the curbs and the street is clear of any melting snow and water.
The main focus in early spring will be to clean the main arterial roads. These roads will be swept on a regular basis throughout the spring, summer and fall.
The cleaning of residential streets and paved lanes will take place throughout the summer as needed, but particularly during a three week period in early May.
When the City Sweeping Crew is in your area, we ask that all vehicles/equipment are moved off the street to allow the crew to do a proper job.
Residential areas are swept between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.
