What is the City's Sidewalk Policy?
The City Commission may at any time, order sidewalks be constructed or repaired. If the property owner fails to do so within thirty days, the City may construct the sidewalk and assess the cost against the property. All sidewalks must be constructed as specified by the City, including acquiring a permit from the City's Building Inspector. Once sidewalks are installed it is the property owner's responsibility to maintain them.
What is the City's snow removal & sanding policy?
The Street Department sends out a sanding crew when we receive 1" to 4" of snow. After 4" of snow accumulation or slick conditions exist we plow our Primary Snow Route.
It is unlawful for anyone to shovel or push snow into a city street. Gravel streets are not on the normal sanding routes. Click here to see current routes.
When is my street getting swept?
Our street sweeping schedule normally runs from May-August, for the first 2 full weeks of each month. Each year in April we mail a copy of the updated street sweeping schedule to all residents. If you didn’t receive one or lost your copy you can view and print another copy here. Through the rest of the year, we sweep the City streets as needed.
A streetlight is out in my neighborhood. Who do I contact to fix it?
Most of the streetlights in town belong either to the City or North Western Energy. Call 222-5667 and notify the Public Works office of the light in question. If it does not belong to the City we will notify N.W.E.
