A "COMPOST" STICKER MUST BE ON THE CAN. Stickers are available at the DPS and City Clerk's Offices. Containers can be marked with paint or marker as long as it clearly states "COMPOST".
Large brown paper compost bags may be used for yard waste and do not need special markings. These can be purchased at large retail stores, lawn and garden stores, etc.
Yard Waste will not be accepted in plastic bags, grocery bags, cardboard boxes or other unapproved containers.
THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING AND PUBLIC SERVICE is comprised of the Department of Public Service (DPS), Engineering, and Motor Pool divisions. All divisions are headed by the Director of Public Service and Water Timothy Neighbors.
DPS is responsible for city roads, storm sewers, park maintenance, building maintenance, transfer station, RV storage site, and city trees. Refuse and recycling collection is handled by a private contractor but is overseen by the DPS. Examples of work include clearing roads of snow, fix potholes, installs road signs, maintain athletic fields, plant and trim trees, and provides special pick-ups of concrete and dirt. The city's noxious weed ordinance is also overseen by the DPS. All of the city's 209 acres of parks are maintained by the DPS. The DPS is responsible for monthly cleaning of the roads by means of street sweepers, they manage an annual tree replacement program, and manage an annual storm sewer cleaning program.
The Engineering Division is the liaison between the city and its consulting engineer (Hennessey Engineering) and assists other departments with engineering issues. Engineering also reviews site plans for providing input to the Planning Commission, Building Department, and Downtown Development Authority (DDA) for proposed and existing developments in the city. In addition, Engineering sets the city engineering standards street and utility construction must meet and supervises internal construction projects performed by the DPS.
The Motor Pool is responsible for acquiring the City-owned fleet of vehicles and equipment and maintaining them in a safe, proper functioning condition. This includes all Police, Fire, Recreation, Building and DPS vehicles and city-owned maintenance equipment such as lawn mowers, tractors, street sweeper, boom truck, chain saws, weed whips, pumps, etc.
