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 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.
The Public Works Department will begin loose leaf pickup at the curb on October 1st at 8:00am and stop on Friday November 30th, 2018 at 4:00pm. Loose leaves will need to be bagged after December 1st for pickup. Please rake leaves to edge of the street but not into the traffic lanes. Do not mix branches or other items in the leaf piles as it will plug our equipment. Yard waste will still be picked up on Mondays and must be bagged. Any questions can be directed to Mark Abbott, Public Works Superintendent at 989-681-3644.
