Stormwater/Street Department

The Stormwater/Street Department of Public Works is responsible for conducting monthly inspections of commercial sites for potential illicit discharges; also inspections of detention ponds, catch basins and storm sewer systems.

If a detention pond on your property was constructed early in the development process, it was probably used to trap sediment from construction activities in the tributary drainage area, a very effective way to collect and remove pollutants. In addition, the detention pond may provide benefits such as passive recreation and open space opportunities while reducing peak runoff rates and improving water quality. A functioning detention pond is a requirement for stormwater management.

Stormwater Utility Fact Sheet

The City currently maintains approximately 46 miles of paved streets. To report a problem with a street within the city limits, to include existing (or developing) pot holes, chipping, cracking, or drainage problems, please contact the Public Works Department during normal business hours. City maintenance crews are on site and ready to resolve any street-related problems or impediments that may develop.
