Spring operations have begun! The City's nine piece fleet started sweeping residential streets Monday, March 26th. Crews will run daily until the entire city has been swept twice.
- Sweepers are operating each weekday:
- Monday through Thursday, 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.
- Friday, 7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
An effective street cleaning operation program is important for removing debris from roadsides and gutters which could ultimately end up in our storm drains. Keeping the storm drains clear not only helps mitigate water pollution, but also reduces the likelihood of flooding during heavy rains.
In addition to the standard spring and fall clean-up operations, street sweepers sweep the entire city throughout the summer. There are also watershed areas within the city that are swept more frequently to meet DNR requirements.
