Street Maintenance

Potholes are filled with cold patch by our Streets Division. If you see or hit a pothole, please call 586-445-5363 to have it filled.

Street Cleaning and Snow Removal

Street sweeping begins in the spring as soon as weather permits and continues until freezing weather. The entire city is swept as often as possible depending on availability of personnel and equipment. Learn more about street cleaning and snow removal.

For any questions or emergencies, call the Department of Public Works at 586-445-5363 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. On weekends, holidays, or after hours, call the Police Dispatch at 586-777-6700.

Home Address Numbers

House numbers should be displayed and easily readable from the public right of way. Numbers should be in Arabic figures at least 3" in height and 1/2" wide. This is especially important in the event an emergency vehicle is coming to your address. Please make sure your address is easily visible.
