The Street Department is a division of the Public Works Department, and is comprised of Street Maintenance, Signs and Markings, and Street Cleaning.
The Street Department performs general maintenance on the streets within the city limits of McPherson. Preventative maintenance of streets is performed through asphalt and concrete replacement, minimal alley maintenance, pothole repair, snow plowing, and street sweeping.
The Street Department maintains all traffic control signs, street identification signs and pavement markings throughout the City.
On a weekly basis, the Street Department sweeps 1 of 13 designated zones of public roadway and the downtown area. Our goal is to sweep regularly, maintaining that all streets are kept swept, while setting a priority of more populated areas, such as the downtown area.
Covering nearly 78 lane miles across McPherson, the Street Department employs 10 authorized full-time employees to accomplish these objectives.
