The Service Department includes both the Streets and Parks crew and Water and Sewer Maintenance crew. 

Streets and Parks is responsible for maintaining safe roadways by filling potholes, crack sealing, striping, and repairing street signs in the public right-of-way. Streets are kept free and clear of debris or any hazards that could cause harm to the motoring public. Crews also plow and salt roads within the city limits during the winter months. The same crew is also responsible for maintaining the city parks and associated facilities. Click here for a list of parks and their amenities.

The Water and Sewer Maintenance crew inspects, flushes, vacuums, films, and repairs the city's storm sewer systems.  The crew also maintains and repairs catch basins and retention basins, removes blockages to creeks and streams and makes water line and sanitary sewer repairs.

OUPS Locates
Before digging or excavating on your property, it is important to call OUPS at 811. They will notify the appropriate agencies to physically mark the location of all underground utility lines. This is done with either temporary paint or small flags. The Water and Sewer Maintenance crew locates all of the water and sewer infrastructure.
