Street Sweeping

The Street Department is responsible for keeping the streets swept and clean. However, many streets are within city boundaries but are not annexed. If this is the case, the street is private and we will not sweep it. We would be glad to answer any questions about specific areas.

No specific schedule is set for sweeping the city. We sweep by areas and not by blocks. If we should happen to miss your side of the street, the sweepers will be back. The Street Department will sweep every area twice to ensure that all sand and debris is picked up.
