Streets Division

Street Maintenance


Potholes are filled by a crew that routinely covers all the streets in the city. Primary attention is given to main traffic arteries. If you see or hit a pothole, a call to D.P.W. will (in most cases) get it repaired by the next working day.

Street Cleaning and Snow Removal


Street sweeping begins in the spring as soon as weather permits and continues through until freezing weather. The entire city is swept as often as possible depending on availability of personnel and equipment failure. Learn more about street cleaning and snow removal.

For any questions or emergencies, call the Department of Public Works at 586-445-5363 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. On weekends, holidays, or after hours, call the Police Dispatch at 586-777-6700.

Home Address Numbers


House numbers should be displayed and easily readable from the public right of way. Numbers should be in Arabic figures at least 3" in height and 1/2" wide. This is especially important in the event an emergency vehicle is coming to your address. Please make sure your address is easily spotted.
