Annual Street Spring Cleaning
Street sweeping will commence this year as weather allows. Its hanging on longer than most years, so please be patient if you see the signs and we are delayed by weather getting to your area. The order of street sweeping will progress as follows: Residential Streets, Arterial roads, Shopping Center Parking Lots, and Highway 16 (scheduled to accommodate the line painters).
This year the residential sweeping will be starting first on the Thompson Lake Subdivision, Hill and then Valley. We are operating on a three-year rotational basis. In addition, crews will be patching potholes, washing signs, cleaning guard rails and bridge decks. Fresh line painting will commence after the streets have been cleaned and the frost is out of the ground.
Crews will be sweeping residential roadways throughout the Town, area by area. Advance signing will be placed on main access roads.
Please remove your vehicles when you see this sign – or when you see the street cleaning equipment in the area. The Peace Officer will be patrolling each area to ensure that all vehicles have been removed so that the sweeping crews can do a better sweeping job.
The Annual Spring Clean Up will be combined with Environmental Week from May 30 to June 5, 2021. Watch for further advertising. For further information call the Infrastructure Service Department at 780-865-2634.
