The Street Department consists of eight full-time employees. The team is responsible for much more than meets the eye. Aside from repairing and maintaining our 170 lane-miles of roadway, they also complete numerous other projects including traffic control installation and programming, monthly Chipper Days
, right of way clearing, and much more. They also maintain the City’s Stormwater infrastructure. The City has a complex stormwater drainage system that conveys water from developed areas to our local streams which empty into the Arkansas River. The Street team provides regular cleaning and maintenance of approximately 2000 inlets, 51 miles of pipe, and 56 miles of creeks.
