About Street Maintenance

Slurry Sealing:

The city contracts to have your street Slurry Sealed. Weather permitting: the contractor will work from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm on the date(s) noted posted. ON-STREET PARKING WILL BE PROHIBITED DURING THIS TIME. It will be necessary to tow any vehicles parked on the street at the time of slurry sealing. Please park and drive on adjacent streets not posted NO PARKING.

Your street will be CLOSED unless flaggers are present to control traffic. Please avoid driving, bicycle riding, or walking on sealed streets until the new surface dries. Under normal weather conditions your street will be re-opened within 3 to 4 hours after sealing is complete. Only EMERGENCY VEHICLES will be allowed through at any time.

We would appreciate you refraining from activity that would allow any water to run into the street on the days of the work (watering lawns, washing cars, etc.).

Unless you are notified otherwise your GARBAGE SERVICE will occur on your normal day, we ask that you have all containers out by 6:00 am.
