Streets Department

Streets Department Staff - August 2019

The Streets Department is responsible for the paving and reconstruction of streets, alleys, and the restoration of utility cuts and trenches; repair of sinkholes, frost boils and potholes, crack-sealing, shaping unimproved streets, and minor maintenance of bridges.

The stormwater staff develops and implements procedures to carry out the requirements of the City's separate Storm Sewer Permit, NPDES No. PA-0063665 and Section 402(p) of the Clean Water Act (Storm Water Rules) and monitors water quality in the watersheds to ensure the primary sources of water for the public water supply are not degraded.

Coverage is also provided for a variety of civic service projects and for any emergency situations. This Department incorporates all phases of salting, pre-wetting of City streets prior to a snow storm event, sanding, plowing and snow removal with 24 hour coverage during the winter season (November to April). This department includes hand sweeping by City crews of City streets, alleys and certain posted areas which are not a part of the automatic sweeping department. The Streets Department is responsible for the entire removal of leaves from the city streets.
