Street Sweeping

The Streets Section operates two sweepers on a routine schedule, dividing the City into four quadrants. Sweepers run on a summer and a winter sweep schedule.


Operations for the spring include a one-time Spring Cleaning event to coincide with Community Code Compliance Spring clean-up.


Operations are regulated to cleaning main arteries on a weekly basis and residential streets on a monthly basis.
  • The immediate downtown is swept daily Monday-Friday
  • Sweeping is a target projection - every effort will be made to keep on the summer schedule
  • Unpredictable weather occurrences, like major rain events, could alter the schedule temporarily


Operations are determined by snowstorms
  • After a storm subsides, all arteries/collectors and bike lanes are given first priority
  • Once these areas are passable, we begin sweeping residential streets
  • City Facebook and Twitter posts will provide the latest information about when crews will be working in the community.

What You Can Do To Help

  1. Please be aware that the amount of time it takes to sweep is directly related to how much debris is on the streets.
  2. Clear overhanging trees and shrubbery 10 - 12 feet high so sweepers can hit the curb line without causing damage to the sweeping equipment.
  3. Sweep sidewalks adjacent to your residence the week before you're area is scheduled.
  4. Remove and replace landscaping rocks that fall into the curb line.
  5. Move cars that are parked on the street for the week of the sweeping. Cars in the road can decrease the area the sweeper is able to reach. In some instances, cars on the street can completely prevent the sweeper from being able to enter. In these cases, the streets will have to wait for their next scheduled date.
