Street Sweeping Begins

March 17, 2022 — Recent spring-like weather has allowed street sweeping crews to start clearing city streets of sand and debris. Arterial routes, roads which serve as main emergency routes throughout the city, are the first priority.

“I anticipate the street sweeping process to take a little longer this year due to the amount of sand that was needed this winter,” says Street Superintendent Brian Dirk.

Once the main roads are complete and if weather allows, crews will move into residential areas.

The street sweeping schedule is dependent on unforeseen weather, breakdowns and any other emergencies. If the process is stopped, crews will pick up where they left off once they can resume sweeping streets. Updates on the schedule will be provided periodically at

Please use caution around street sweepers on the roadway.
