The Streets Maintenance division maintains 290 miles of roadway, 270 alleys, 750 miles of sidewalks and walkways, over 16,500 street signs, and numerous lane markers.
The goal is to sweep residential neighborhoods on a six week schedule. The business areas and truck routes are swept weekly. The Central Business District (CBD) is hard to sweep due to the number of buildings that have businesses on the first floor and residents on the upper floors. To minimize the impact of sweeping in the CBD, the area is swept in two hour increments, three days per week.
Grass cutting and trimming is the responsibility of the abutting property owners. If owners fail to maintain the grass within the right-of-way, the City will try to contact the property owner and ask them to maintain the grass. When the property owner still fails to maintain the grass, once or twice per year Streets staff use tractor mowers to cut vegetation back from the edge of the pavement.
Streets maintenance division staff also respond to requests for tree clearance maintance on the city's right-of-ways.
