The Service Department shall have the responsibility for construction, improvement, and maintenance of all public works, buildings, grounds, parks, roads, streets, and all other public places of the Municipality, and for the collection and disposal of wastes. Snow plowing and salting of local streets are done when conditions warrant. Wood chips are also available to residents for delivery by picking up an application at City Hall.


The City is responsible for the maintenance and repair of all sanitary and storm sewer located in the right-of-way including service connection laterals. The property owner is responsible for providing a test "T" (clean out), which will be located on private property to aid the service department in determining the location of a problem. If a test "T" is not available the service department will assist the homeowner in locating the test "T" through reviewing available drawings, probing of potential locations and minor hand excavations. If a solution to the problem can not be found, and a test "T" is not located, the property owner, by copy of this policy will be notified that one must be installed.

If you experience a problem with a sanitary or storm sewer line, notify the Service Department. A complete copy of this policy is available at City Hall.

Household waste collection is done year round. Please drop off materials Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY LATEX PAINTS. Please place kitty litter inside can and once completely dry please dispose of with your regular garbage.

All rubbish will be picked up once each week on Thursday. Please place the carts on the side of the driveway approximately 3 feet from the curb with the arrows facing the street and at least 3 feet apart or on opposite sides of the driveway from each other by 6:00 a.m. on Thursday. Do not place rubbish out until 5:00 p.m. the night before pick up day. Please refrain from putting broken glass, syringes or sharp objects loosely into plastic bags. This prevents laceration and puncture wounds from occurring. In addition to household rubbish yard waste will also be collected from April 15th through November 30th. Grass clippings and other yard waste should be placed in either brown paper yard waste bags, not to exceed 40 pounds, or place loose yard waste in an old garbage can marked "yard waste."
