Mill Road Bridge Construction

Construction on the Mill Road Bridge continues, but should open to traffic by the end of the month.

The original plan intended for this project to be completed before the start of school, but weather has pushed that goal back. Cement has needed time to cure, and rain has been an issue.

We appreciate your patience as we continue to improve our City roads. (Posted August 9, 2017)

Citywide Street Sweeping

Beginning the week of February 6th, street sweeping will begin on the roadways shown on the linked map. Weather permitting, this street sweeping will be concluded in 2 weeks. We ask that residents of these streets refrain from parking on or placing any items in the roadway between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Trash receptacles and recycle bins should be placed behind the curb during this time for your weekly pickup.

The street sweeping program is aimed at improving the quality of storm water runoff.

Never dump motor oil, chemicals, pet waste, dirty or soapy water, or other substances down a storm drain.
