The shop provides preventative and corrective maintenance of the City's fleet of vehicles. Otis Taylor is the shop mechanic.

Street Maintenance
The Public Works Department has a section dedicated to the maintenance of streets and street right-of-ways. The department is responsible for removal of yard waste and care of roadsides, ditches and related property. Ellen Salter and her staff work around the clock regardless of time or climate to ensure the storm drains are operating properly to avoid damage to property.

Street Construction
The City's Street Department is divided into two separate divisions of Public Works. The Street Construction Department oversees the structural quality of roads, ditches, storm drains and sidewalks. Repair of existing infrastructure and additional construction keeps the employees on the move. For complaints regarding roadways or sidewalks please contact City Hall for prompt service.
