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 tranfer station and the two city-owned cemeteries, Oak Grove Cemetery and Mineral Spring Avenue Cemetery.
Begining 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.
Paving also begins the week of April 3rd. We will be milling and paving roads throughout the city as weather permits. Residents affected by these improvements will receive a letter in the mail outlining the work, along with a reminder on the telephone poles in the area 24-48 hours before the process begins.
