Our Street Maintenance Division responds quickly to repair a city street requiring an asphalt overlay of no more than 700 to 1,000 feet. An asphalt repair larger than 1,000 feet is contracted out. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) maintains larger repair projects and the main city thoroughfares such as Hillsboro Boulevard, 10th Street, Powerline Road, and Federal Highway. Whereas the Streets Division maintains all City parking lots, sidewalks, installs speed bumps, streetlight outages, potholes, street sweeping, and clearing storm drains. In addition to clearing storm drains, the City is responsible for meeting guidelines for the National Pollution Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES)as well as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To help with meeting those guidelines, the street sweeper helps to prevent debris from entering the storm drains. The street sweeper operates during non-peak hours due to traffic volume in the interest of public safety:
Residential Sweeping: 3:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. twice per month Commercial Sweeping: 3:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. once or twice per week Medians & Curbs: 3 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. once or twice per week
If you have any concerns regarding street sweeping, please contact (954) 480-4270 or via email.
