DPW includes the following divisions:
Repairs to traffic control and street signs are typically completed in two days from the time of notification. Stop signs and those that are in a dangerous condition are considered priorities. The Division oversees approximately 6,000 signs. Common service requests include: downed signs; signs in need of repair; faded signs; twisted signs; and graffiti on signs.
The Division processes many kinds of service requests including: installing new streetlights in an existing community; installing streetlights in a new development or where road improvement projects have occurred; drawing “mark-outs” where work is to occur by outside or private contractors in order to prevent the damaging of wires or pipes that might be near or involve underground utilities. Often, underground utilities are hidden in areas where construction is proposed. The Division also regularly monitors for light outages.
