The Street crews repair damaged asphalt and potholes, complete minor asphalt overlays and crack sealing, sweep streets year round, and provide snow and ice removal during snow season to ensure the roadways are safe and passable. They also maintain all traffic control signs, long line stripes, pavement markings, electrical maintenance, and traffic engineering and operations. Electrical maintenance includes City street lights, traffic signals and signal systems, and school speed beacons (flashers).
