The Street Department has seven employees who perform routine maintenance and repairs on city streets. Approxiatemately 55 miles of paved streets, 18 miles of caliche streets and several alleys are part of the maintenance routine. The city does not do any street construction or seal coating, however, instead choosing to contract these major items of construction out to private enterprise. 

Some other responsibilities include mowing vacant lots; removing old structures, sign maintenance and mosquito control. Equipment operated by the Street Department includes a motor grader, front end loader, a street sweeper, plus a fleet of trucks, pickups and numerous smaller pieces of equipment.
