Maintaining the 19 miles of city streets includes painting streets and crosswalks, pot hole repairs, maintaining street signs, sidewalk and curb repair, repairing storm sewers, cleaning and maintaining catch basins, snow removal and fall leaf collection.

The Service Department also maintains Chamberlin Park and all public grounds; cutting grass, ball field maintenance, landscaping and planting trees.

Building maintenance and janitorial services to all public buildings and preventive maintenance of our vehicle fleet are important services completed in-house by our service department.

Leaf Collection Program

Leaf collection takes place during the fall months, usually October 15 - December 15.  Each year, our service crews pick up approximately 2000 cubic yards of leaves.

Leaves should be placed at the curb, not in the street.  In order to prevent injury to machine operators and damage to equipment, leaves must be free of brush, vines, and foreign debris.

After the regular leaf collection period, any remaining leaves should be placed in bags or cans and put out for pick-up on your regularly scheduled garbage day. 

Brush Chipping Regulations                      

Chipping is generally every Friday, January thru October (suspended during leaf pick period of Mid-October - mid December).   Please have brush out BEFORE Friday. 

Items to be chipped should be stacked with cut ends facing the same way and toward the street. 

Limbs MUST be AT LEAST 4 feet in length (longer is better).  Please do NOT bundle brush that is set out for chipping. 

Limbs and branches MUST be at least 1 inch, but not more than 8 inches in diameter

The following CANNOT be chipped: Small sticks, twigs, clippings, flowers, and vines. These items can be placed in bags or in cans for Rumpke to pick up on your regular garbage pick up day.  Roots cannot be chipped, and must be separated from bushes.
