Reminder of Spring Road Maintenance 

The Roads and Drainage Division will be completing a variety of spring maintenance to ensure that all Town-owned roads and infrastructure are safe for public use following the winter season.

Street Sweeping & Line Painting
Street sweeping is scheduled to begin once the roads are dry to clear sand and debris left behind from the winter. After the roads are cleared of sand and debris, line painting will follow.

Gravel Road Grading
Gravel roads will be graded where needed once the roads are dry to eliminate potholes, gravel issues, and other surface deficiencies created by the winter weather. 

Boulevard & Road Sign Repairs
Town crews will conduct inspections in May to repair damaged boulevards and to replace damaged signs throughout the community.

Residents are reminded that all road maintenance issues can be submitted online 24/7 using the Town’s Online Service System.
