The Public Works Department is responsible for operating and maintaining nearly 19 miles of Village streets. Our staff is responsible for pothole repairs, street sweeping, sidewalk maintenance and repair, street sign maintenance, crosswalk and curb painting, snow removal and ice control, and curbside brush chipping. The Public works staff maintains a fleet of vehicles and equipment that is used in the day-to-day operation as well as all municipal facilities.
In addition to operating and maintaining village streets, equipment and facilities our staff maintains all park and open space areas. Typically summer activities include tasks like keeping our parks free from litter, maintaining the wading pool, clipping weeds, maintaining the ball diamonds (Highridge, Upper Diamond and Lower Diamond) and helping citizens to set-up festivals, parades and other visitor events.
There are many roads in the Village that are not maintained by the Village. Any county trunk highway that runs through the village is maintained by the Brown County Highway Department. Interestate 43, CTH R, CTH KB (De Pere Rd., Main Street, Wisconsin Ave.), and CTH T (N. Wall) are county highways that pass through the Village. State Highway 96 that connects to the west side of the Village is the responsibility of the Wisconsin Department of Transporation and the Brown County Highway Department.
