Street Division/Central Garage
In most cities, the Street Division is not responsible for maintaining tree sites or airports. Our department maintains both sites. At the Spencer Municipal Airport, our employees do the mowing, provide hangar and building maintenance, and provide upkeep of the 450 runway lights, and runways so they will be clean and ready for incoming and outgoing flights.
One of this divisions important duties is plowing snow, accumulating approximately 3,500 hours each year. It takes roughly 8 hours to plow the entire City after a normal snowfall, using 10 operational vehicles in the process.
The Street Division is under the direction of the Public Works Department. A staff of 11 full-time employees and including 2 mechanics and 2 part-time seasonal employees help to keep our city on the go.
