Providing maintenance, repair and extensions of our street, sidewalk, and drainage systems is the primary task of this division. With approximately 130 miles of streets, 12 miles of sidewalks, approximately 75 miles of drainage culverts, tiles, ditches, and canals, the employees of this division are kept busy year round. Division personnel provide tree trimming and removal, banner installation (Banner Request Application), traffic signal maintenance, and new street, drainage, and driveway (Driveway Permit Application) construction inspections.

In an effort to insure the proper flow of storm water and water quality, this division works daily on drainage ways, street sweeping of all curbed and guttered streets, and inspection and investigation of any improper dumping or connections to our storm sewer system. To report any suspected acts which might impair our streams and rivers contact (252) 639-7501.

This division abates weeded lots and nuisance properties to eliminate litter and clutter throughout the city.
