Street Department

The Street Department is responsible for the repair and maintenance of roads within the city limits. Roads are continuously inspected and repaired using hot mix asphalt and/or cold patch blacktop to provide a safe roadway for motorists.

Water Department

Department employees routinely read, inspect, and repair water meters; repair city water lines; and test water supplies to ensure a reliable, clean, and safe water supply to area residents.

The Wastewater Treatment Department operates a modern state-of-the-art plant that processes 444,000 gallons from the city's sewer system each day. The waste water is processed and sanitized then the water is safely redistributed into a tributary of the Flint River.

Solid Waste Department

The City is contracted with  Advanced Disposal Systems  to pick-up and dispose of residential and commercial solid waste once each week. The City maintains a limb truck that the streets employees use to pick up residential yard waste as needed.
