Transportation & Streets
The transportation and streets function have oversight of roadway maintenance, roadway improvement projects, permits related to use of city right-of-way, and other street-related projects or programs.
Encroachment Permits are required whenever work will be done in the city right-of-way. Examples include driveway repair, utility work, building construction, sewer work, and even some landscaping.
In conjunction with these specific areas of work, the city also has consultant and contracting opportunities to support these efforts.
