or broken concrete curbs, gutters, sidewalks and cross pans. The concrete
repair work is performed in response to citizen requests and in accordance
with the City's damage assessment and repair rating program. City crews' efforts
typically involve repair or replacement of broken sidewalks and curbs/gutters
where utilization of contractors is not feasible, due to time constraints,
scheduling conflicts or on smaller projects that are not economical to complete
by contract. Crews also grind and repair sidewalk panels which are out of
alignment and present trip hazards, and perform maintenance and repairs of
guard rails located throughout the City.
The Street Cleaning service is responsible for maintaining clean and debris-free
City streets and alleys. Streets are swept periodically on a rotation basis.
This service also responds to special requests for sweeping due to dirt, glass,
spills, and other debris generated by incidents such as traffic accidents
and construction. Street sweeping has a positive impact on the City's air
quality by reducing the amount of dust particulate in the air that are generated
from street dust and dirt. For more information please call 303-651-8416.
