Our Street Department is staffed with 9 FT operators, one FT mechanic and one FT utilities operator for water distribution. The residents of the city are provided many services throughout the year including free lawn and leaf bags for pick up.  Crews will deliver them during the bi-weekly pick-up cycle (the department’s curbside yard waste recycling program is second to none in Portage County), annual city-wide leaf pickup program and free compost/mulch giveaways during the summer months.

Of the approximately 100 lane miles of city streets, services include snowplowing, spot improvements and maintaining the city’s storm and sanitary sewer systems and street sweeping operations. The residents of the city are very fortunate to have this dedicated group of employees that perform these tasks each day of the year in all types of weather elements.
