Public Works

The next round of Branch Chipping will begin on Monday, October 5th.

The Crews make 1 complete pass through the City. We ask that you pile the branches parallel to the roadway (cut ends not facing the road) to assist our crews in their collection efforts as this increases efficiency and worker safety as they operate the chipping equipment. Branches must not be larger than 10 inches in diameter. Please use caution and remain alert when driving near the chipping crews to keep our workers and yourself safe!

Due to the length of time required to provide this service to the entire city on a monthly basis, the crews will be unable to return to pick up branches that were not out for chipping when your street was completed for the month.

The primary function of the Public Works Department is to ensure that high quality maintenance of existing infrastructure occurs to produce a high level of customer service. The department ensures that the city is meeting state and federal reporting requirements and regulations for the waste water plant, collection, and distribution systems.

The Public Works Department conducts the formal bid process, prepares contracts, and performs inspections of all public works construction projects and initiates planning and organizing activities of the department.
