The DPW sweeps all concrete streets several times annually. Street sweeping is performed the same day as trash pick up. Asphalt roads are swept once a year in the spring. Residents are required to keep all vehicles off the street to ensure proper trash removal and street sweeping. Please do not place trash receptacles in the road, this interferes with the street sweeping. Also, it is against City ordinance to sweep yard debris in the roadways. This could also obstruct the storm sewers, which could lead to flooding.
TREE TRIM AND REMOVAL:
The DPW maintains trees on your City easement, generally between the sidewalk and curb. We will only remove dead, diseased or dying trees.
DTE STREETLIGHT OUTAGES:
The DPW reports streetlight outages to DTE for repair. Please contact the DPW office with location of the pole, please try to have an exact address of location for DTE crews. DTE asks for a ten business day return time to repair the light, depending on the severity of the repair this time may be extended.
