Street Division

Summer is here!

Chip and Fog Sealing is over. The paint crew has completed restriping the chip zone, and will continue striping the main roads. Please stay well behind the back of the paint truck, and drive with caution. It usually takes 90 seconds to two minutes for the paint to dry. Do not pass the paint truck. When driving over wet paint, it can cause the transfer of paint to areas of the road where it should not be, and create more work for you removing it from your vehicle.
If you happen to get paint on your vehicle, please wash immediately as it is a water based paint and it should come off easily.

Thermo plastic
The Thermo crew will continue this week. They have completed the chip zone, and the school crosswalks. They should be nearing completion with the exception of the bike symbols.

Sweeping
Sweeping will continue on the main and secondary roads. The crew will start in subdivisions 
by the end of August.

Weeds
The weed crew will continue weed eating the City right a ways and City property throughout town. 


NOTE:
When you see the signal or street light repair crew working along side the road and in the bucket truck, please slow down and if possible change lanes away from the crew. Proceed with caution.

If you have a concern please call the office or use our online request form.
