Streets & Stormwater Division
Street DivisionThe Street Division repairs and maintains the City’s streets, rights-of-way, sidewalks and curbs as well as tree trimming, pruning and removal and all maintenance and placement of traffic signage, and pavement markings.
Stormwater DivisionThe Stormwater Division’s function is to protect property by maintaining positive flows to prevent flooding, yet sustain nature’s hydrological balance. This division is required to perform inspections and cleaning maintenance in order to remain in compliance for our NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) permit. This division is responsible for maintaining 12.88 miles of ditches and creeks, which includes removing trash, debris and soil sediment from our creeks, ditches and ponds. This division also provides routine inspections and cleaning of over 1,075 catch basins.

Sand for sandbags will be made available during hurricane season for storm events that have major flooding potential. Sand will be available at the Public Works complex. Residents will need to supply their own bags and shovels to fill the bags. Please note, if you live in unincorporated County, visit Pinellas County's Website for sandbag station locations. Contact Public Works, or visit the City's Facebook page for updates. For more information on sandbags: How Stuff Works - Sandbags.
