Public Works Department

The Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining the infrastructure of the city. This includes: picking up trash and recyclables; maintaining the streets, sidewalks, sewers and bridges; cleaning and plowing the streets; controlling the traffic flow in the city; and maintaining the city-owned transfer station and the two city-owned cemeteries, Oak Grove Cemetery and Mineral Spring Avenue Cemetery.

Beginning April 3rd and running through December 15, 2017 the city will be collecting leaf/yard waste refuse from residents on their regularly scheduled trash day. Leaves/yard waste must be in brown yard waste bags available at all local hardware stores, or put in a barrel (33 gallons or less) labeled yard waste. This program does not cover wood from building materials or scrap wood of any kind.
