Street Cleaning and Lane Grading
Street sweeping and lane grading take place in the spring and fall of each year. Priority areas are the downtown commercial district, primary collector streets followed by residential areas. Notification signs are posted in advance on streets scheduled to be swept.
Sweeping starts as early as 6:00am. Please remove vehicles form the street the night before. Sweepers cover streets only once and will not return to clean areas that were missed because of parked vehicles.
Street sweeping may be interrupted by inclement weather, equipment failure or other operational emergencies. Staff do their best to get to your street as quickly as possible. We appreciate your cooperation during street sweeping.
