The street portion of Public Works is responsible for the repair and maintenance of the Villages utilities within the public right-of-way, including the public roadways, sidewalks, curb and gutters, streetlights on steel poles only, signage, and combined sewers.
Street Sweeping is operated Monday through Friday from March until the first snowfall. Every curb is swept once a week with alleys cleaned once a month. Please exercise caution when passing the street sweeper. Street Sweeping lowers the cost of infrastructure maintenance by:
- Cleaning residue generated by brake shoes from automobiles
- Removing other debris from the streets, keeping it out of storm drains, and catch basins preventing blockages.
- Removing small branches and leaves
