Crack Sealing Season

The Public Works Department will be crack sealing city streets for the next few months. To be effective, it is necessary to blow debris from the street before the crack sealing process is started. At the end of each work day the crew will come back and clean the debris away from sidewalks and driveways. If you see Public Services doing sealing on your street please move your vehicles off the street to help expedite the crack sealing work. Thank you for your patience and courtesy during these street repairs.
