Sweeping is accomplished by the use of two street sweepers owned by the City. Sand clean-up from snow and ice control becomes a top priority once the final snowmelt occurs in early spring. Once sand removal is completed sweeper operators begin regular sweeping routes. Fall leaf cleanup is completed in areas with storm drainage issues on an as needed basis as well as areas that leaf build-up causes traffic hazards. Citizens are advised not to sweep leaves from their yards into the roadway. Another area street sweeping is utilized is when accident or material spills occur. These clean-up efforts take priority over all other assignments. Lastly the street sweeper may be used to assist in the removal of rainwater to prevent possible flooding.

The City has added additional school zone lights at Wiley Elementary, Tapteal Elementary and Enterprise Middle School. The additional lights alert verhicles entering school zones from side streets they are entering an active school zone. The City choose a “green” approach by installing solar powered lights at Enterprise to reduce construction and long term costs while doing our part to help conserve electricity.
The School Zone flashers are used to draw attention to school sign signs during time when school children are present and the 20 mph speed limit is being enforced. Please use extra caution when driving through school zones. Below are programmed times for elementary and middle schools. Vehicles stopped for speeding in a school zone during flash time may be cited. Speed limit on all roads when not flashing is 25 mph unless otherwise posted.
