Other services provided by the division include:

Street Striping
Street striping includes center lines and lane lines on city streets and is done twice a year, in the spring and fall. Press releases are issued to inform residents of the start dates. During street striping motorists are asked to avoid driving across wet paint, to obey traffic controls, and to be aware of workers in the streets. Crews usually work from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Street Cleaning
Street cleaning usually begins soon after spring arrives. A press release will be issued to inform residents of the start date. Street sweeping is scheduled on the day after regularly scheduled trash collection in residential neighborhoods. A street that is on the Friday trash collection schedule would be swept on the following Monday. The sweeper may not sweep every street in a trash collection zone every week. However, streets that are missed one week will be swept the following week. The city is asking for residents’ cooperation in moving their cars off streets on street sweeping day in their area.
