The Street Division is responsible for roadway maintenance on city owned streets, as well as drainage ditches, storm drains and storm pipe in city right-of-ways and easements.
The Division has a street sweeper and one flusher truck for street cleaning and provides snow and ice removal during inclement weather. During the spring months, the City Engineer assesses all city streets to determine which streets are to be included in that year's paving program.
Street signage, mowing (city right-of-ways), and construction of small drainage projects are a few of the responsibilities of the Street Division.
The Street Division provides an annual leaf collection in the fall (usually late October and November). Residents can rake their leaves out to the curb and leaf vacuums will come by to collect them. This is done on a schedule determined by the Public Works Department and published in the local newspaper during leaf collection season.
Flood Pumping Stations
The Street Division personnel operates and maintains four Kentucky River flood pumping stations, the floodwall, and levees. This flood protection system was built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1969 (North Frankfort) and 1997 (South Frankfort).
