Public Works

The Department of Public Works is located at 1005 Wayburn (off Jefferson on Wayburn).  The hours of operation are 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.  The DPW is responsible for maintenance of city streets, sidewalks, and general cleaning of the city. To contact the Public Works Garage please call 313-822-5100.

Fall Leaf Collection

Please utilize curbside leaf pick up instead of compost bags. This will keep compost bag pick up to a minimum and save money and time. Curbside collection will take place from October until December (weather permitting). Leaves will not be picked up with branches, sod, dirt, brush or rubbish debris mixed in.

Snow Removal

Streets are our #1 priority during snow events.  ·· Due to the cost of salt, the DPW will be spot salting at intersections and mid-way on all streets. During accumulating snow, streets will be salted and plowing will take place when accumulation is 3 inches or greater. Please do not snow blow or shovel snow back into the street.··  We do appreciate your help on this issue.

SIDEWALKS:  As a service to homeowners, snow and ice is cleared from sidewalks.  In the event that snowfall is very limited or ice build-up occurs, residents are asked to clear their sidewalks within 12 hours of such occurrences.

SNOW REMOVAL BY CONTRACTORS:  It is the Contractor’s  responsibility to push the snow they are plowing back onto the homeowner’s property not the neighbor’s property.  The Police Department will issue tickets to Contractor’s who violate this policy. 

The Water Board is also part of the DPW, and handle all water main repairs as well as the installation and repair of water meters, the reading of water meters for billing and water shut off due to repairs.
