The Department of Public Works

Superintendent Mark Abbott heads the Department of Public Works. The workers needed to maintain the 22 1/2 miles of City streets and perform routine maintenance are Calvin Martyn, Tom Jungnitsch, Jake Oswald, Alex Velazco and Shawn Felker.
This department has a vactor truck used for cleaning sewer lines, four large dump trucks with plows, a small dump truck, two smaller pickups, and 6,000 gallon tanker truck, a front loader and four riding mowers. These vehicles are used primarily for the maintenance & repair of roads and public properties, and for snow removal.
Please remember to keep fire hydrants and drains clear of snow.  Also it is illegal to plow snow from driveways or walks into or across the street as this can hinder snow removal by City Crews.

Policies and Procedures

Reminder to Residents:  Sec. 54-14 - Obstructions; snow removal of The City of St. Louis Code of Ordinances states that the owner or occupant of any lot, land or premise is responsible for sidewalk snow and ice removal.  No person in removing snow or ice from any sidewalk shall cause damage to sidewalk.

just in case! Thanks everyone.
