Curbs, gutters, and sidewalks in the City limits is the property owner's responsibility to maintain. (City code 8-10) However, the City does offer a curb and gutter program that reimburses a portion of the cost of the curb and gutter.

The Street Division removes leaves from the roadway in the fall months until weather no longer permits. Those living outside our scheduled pick-up areas can call and schedule a pick-up. leaf collection map (PDF). Be aware that the heavy work-load during this time can create a short wait on those special pick-ups.

Plowing and sanding operations are governed by our snow policy while parking restrictions are outlined in the City code 9-5.
