Robert Carlson operates the “broom” on the Old Steese Highway, skillfully sweeping the roadways. “All of our sweeper trucks use water during their operations,” said Eric Grant, Public Works Street Supervisor . Eric explained that if dust is a problem, they will pre-wet the area they are going to be sweeping, but normally the water during the operation contains most of the dust. Also, it is easier on equipment to first pick up in the travel lanes, then use our older equipment to pick up the most abrasive material that is left near the curbs. Please watch for sweeping operations ongoing throughout the City. Please contact the Mayor’s Office at 459-6793 if you have any suggestions or comments.
