The Streets Division is responsible for basic street repair such as filling potholes and repairing minor damage. We also supervise the chip sealing of unimproved streets.


Major street projects such as reconstruction and resurfacing are the responsibility of City Engineering.

CHIP SEAL (SEALCOAT) PROGRAM FOR UNIMPROVED STREETS

The Streets Division conducts an annual chip seal program on unimproved streets. Unimproved streets are streets without curb and gutter.

Chip sealing involves applying a layer of oil to the street and covering it with surfacing material, generally a layer of small stones. After the oil has cured (approximately five to ten days) excess material will be swept by a mechanical street sweeper.

There is no charge to property owners for chip sealing.
