Street & Sidewalk Maintenance

The Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining 160 miles of roadway and 80 miles of sidewalk, including pothole patching, sign maintenance, street sweeping, snow plowing and sidewalk repair and maintenance.

Major street improvements, which are prioritized after evaluation of all paved roads, are planned in cooperation with the Community Development Department and are performed by private contractors overseen by the Village. Current construction projects can be viewed here.

Street sweeping

Curbed streets are swept on a rotating basis. The current time between sweeping cycles is approximately four to eight weeks, depending on the time of year. Sweeping frequency is greater in the spring and fall. No street sweeping is done in winter or whenever the temperature drops below freezing.

Sidewalk repair and replacement

Replacement of deteriorated public sidewalks is funded 100 percent by the Village. The program is implemented on an area-by-area basis annually and only those sidewalks within that area are eligible for replacement in that year based upon available funding for the year. Exceptions are made for areas of sidewalk elsewhere in the Village deemed hazardous by the Public Works Department.
