Roadside Mowing Begins

Roadside mowing began on City streets the week of May 1.photo of sidearm mower

Residents are encouraged to maintain their property adjacent to street right-of -ways to avoid the need, and resulting affect, of our sidearm mower.  With nearly 68 miles of streets to maintain, the sidearm mower is the only viable way we can manage this volume.  A general guideline for homes adjacent to roadways is to keep 
any bushes, tree limbs, etc. out of the roadway and 1-2 feet behind the curb or edge of pavement.  The height should be approximately 16 feet above the road surface. 

For streets with sidewalks, the same applies for the roadway while sidewalks should be clear of obstructions to a height of 7-8 feet. 

Property owners near intersections are also asked to keep vegetation and debris trimmed far enough away from the intersections to allow motorists a reasonable line of sight before entering the intersection. 

For more information please contact Public Works Department at 697-3084.
