The Street Division begins sweeping each year after snow and ice have melted off the roadway. Work starts with arterial and collector streets as well as streets with striping, so the faded striping can be repainted. Residential area scheduled sweeping for 2021 will begin on April 12, 2021 in Zone E.
Streets have been divided into zones, similar to garbage collection. Click HERE to review the schedule.
Each zone is anticipated to be completed in one week, skipping scheduled garbage collection days to avoid sweeping around the 95 gallon carts. After all zones have been completed, crews will take a week to sweep arterial and collector roads and then begin the cycle over again, finishing in October.
Exceptions to the schedule include the week of Independence Day when personnel will be shifted to assist with traffic control and event clean up. Fridays are also an exception due to personnel schedules. The schedule may vary due to unanticipated mechanical issues with equipment.
Leaf collection begins each year following the last round of scheduled street sweeping.
