The function of the Streets Department is to maintain and repair the city’s streets, traffic and street signs, and drainage facilities. This is accomplished by performing work functions such as pothole patching, utility cut repairs, spot sealing, mechanical street sweeping, tree trimming, sign maintenance and installation, drainage ditch maintenance, and severe weather / emergency response duties.
