PUBLIC WORKS

The Public Works department has been busy with many responsibilities.

With the excessive rain we have been getting, the streets department is very busy with mowing, doing maintenance on the streets and cleaning up trees around the City.  We are grateful for the rain, as the green grass and flowers growing just adds to the beauty of the City.

Our other departments are doing hydrant flushing, sewer projects as well as assisting the Streets department with their activities.

We are finalizing the details to get ready to begin the Southside Terrace project for installation of the gravity/sewer system in that area. Please note that when this project begins in the fall, that area may be congested.

A friendly reminder that Bulk pickup is on the First and Third week of each month and that in order to get items picked up for bulk, you should contact the Public Works department Monday-Wednesday of the week of bulk. They can be reached at 386-454-2134.

UTILITY BILLING

Residents who reside in the Southside area, please contact the Finance Department to set up your payment plan and sign a promissory note prior to sewer installation.
