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 both delivery and pick up by picking up an application at City Hall.
» STORM AND SANITARY SEWER MAINTENANCE
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. The Service Department may offer to enter the home and install video equipment within the interior sewer clean out, if the homeowner signs a waiver allowing the Service Department or its agents to enter the home. 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.
