A City of Cooperation
Superintendant of Streets - Marty Wineland
Please feel free to contact the Street Division if you see something you think should be looked at or repaired, e.g. flooding, road repairs, traffic problems, fallen trees, etc.
The Street Division is responsible for the general maintenance of all the city streets, storm sewers, sanitary sewers, and right-of-ways which includes mowing of property.
The Street Division has a state-of-the-art video camera which is used to visually inspect all sanitary and storm sewers for trouble areas and cave-ins. This equipment has greatly enhanced our ability to maintain our many miles of sewers.
During the fall the Street Division offers Curb Side Leaf pickup which usually begins randomly the 2nd or 3rd week in October and runs into the 1st or 2nd week of December, weather permitting. When the schedule ends, leaves must be bagged (40# limit) and set out for Waste Management to pickup on regular pickup day.
During the winter months and snowfall season, our roads are 2nd to none in clearing of snow, as many of our citizens can attest to.
The Street Division built a road salt storage facility in the Fall of 1997. This dome more than tripled the Division's storage capacity, holding more than 1300 tons. It protects the surrounding areas from all the salt runoff.
If you see something you think should be looked at or repaired, you can reach us at (419)698-7016, between the hours of 8:00am and 4:30pm.
