At Public Works we understand that you need reliable and up to date information on city streets and infrastructure. Please bookmark this page and follow us on twitter and facebook where we provide the latest information.
Cleaning & Maintenance: We take pride in the condition and appearance of our city streets. Regular maintenance is scheduled to promote upkeep and ensure longevity. In addition, street sweeping occurs on a constant basis and usually in the overnight hours to be courteous of traffic.
Storm Drains: Integral to the safety of our streets, storm drains must be kept clear of debris and function at maximum capacity. Please remember to help keep our city clean and at full function by NOT leaving grass clippings or leaves in our streets. Dispose of yard waste conveniently at the municipal composting center.
Snow & Ice Removal: Our goal is to ensure the safe and efficient movement of vehicle and pedestrian traffic during snowfall/icing events, and to provide for removal procedures and operational tasks. For snowfall less than 2", we will employ adequate sanding procedures. For snowfall greater than 2" see our link at left.
Storm Clean-up: Kansas storms can bring high winds, rain and hail causing fallen limbs. Critical access and public safety will determine priority of limb removal. (Streets are first priority and then alley ways.) If you have limbs that have fallen on your property you will need to place them at the curb within 48 hours after the storm for pick up. (City staff will not go on private property.) Small limbs should be bundled together for easy handling. Depending on the severity, crews will be collecting limbs for approximately 1 week after the storm. We appreciate your help keeping El Dorado clean after the storm!
Signs & Signals: Public Works maintains all of the city's traffic signals and facilities with knowledgeable and experienced help.
Mosquito control: Mosquito Spraying is provided City-wide during the spring months to help control the adult population. The City of El Dorado begins spraying in May and will continue until October or until the weather is no longer conducive to breeding. Spraying is also dependent on weather conditions such as wind speed and rain forecast. NOTE: The chemicals that are used by the City of El Dorado are not harmful to humans or animals. For tips on how to help control the nuisance at your home see our Mosquito Control link at left.
