The City staff performs several spring street maintenance tasks:
- Street Sweeping - Operations continue through the first part of April. Collector streets will be completed first and neighborhood streets will be next.
- Tree Trimming - Occurring along street and boulevard areas to clear branches that may interfere with sight distance or clearance issues. Tree branches will be pruned and debris will be removed by City crews.
- Potholes - City crews begin pothole patching the end of March and continue through April. To report a pothole, please call the Public Works Department at 952.224.3400.
In addition to routine citywide pothole repairs, the City's Street Preservation Program focuses on scheduled preventative maintenance in specific neighborhoods each year. The program is designed to extend the life of streets by sealing cracks, conducting spot overlays, correcting drainage problems, and carrying out surface treatments such as chip sealing or micro surfacing.Street Sweeping Procedures
All surfaced City streets, parking lots, medians and City maintained sidewalks are swept in the spring of the year (beginning the first week of April if weather permits) and again in the fall (typically at the end of September). Spot sweeping occurs during the summer months as needed after a rain, an accident that has resulted in debris on the road, or at the request of a resident.
