- Paved Streets
Crews periodically patch potholes, seal cracks and do major removal and replacements. Some of this work is accomplished with city crews and some is accomplished by contracted firms.
- Unpaved Streets
Crews periodically grade and gravel unpaved streets. Grading is accomplished after the city has received some type of moisture; i.e. rain.
City crews drag alleys twice a year. For alleys that need more attention please call 308-535-6700.

City streets are swept 3-4 times per year. Business areas, including highway system, downtown core and some outlying business could be swept more frequently or for special events.
- Storm Sewer Drains
Federal Storm Water Pollution Prevention Regulations call for cleaning storm sewers at least once every 10 years. Our goal is to clean all storm sewers at least once every 5 years and address the known problem areas every other year. In addition, storm boxes and catch basins are regulated to be cleaned at least once every 5 years.
