This division also assists other City departments such as the Engineering department by preparing street areas for new construction and other tasks.
There are 14 employees that perform street maintenance work on approximately 100 miles of City streets. The City is divided into 7 zones for snow removal. An average winter has an estimated ice and snow removal cost of $80,000, which includes over 1,700 labor hours.
The Street Maintenance division also provides brush site maintenance (old landfill). This responsibility includes burning brush and that has been hauled into the site throughout the year during spring and fall clean-ups and by residents of Kirksville, under an approved burn permit issued by Mo Dept. of Natural Resources. The brush site is open the second and third weekends of each month, starting Friday at 8:00 am until the following Monday at 8:00 am. All citizens who wish to dispose of trees, limbs and brush before the city-wide pick-up are encouraged to use the tree, limb and brush disposal site. No other trash or debris should be mixed with the limbs and brush. Bagged leaves and other bagged yard waste can be disposed of year-round in the yard waste container at Public Works, located at 2001 N. Osteopathy, Monday – Friday, during the hours of 7:00 am – 4:00 pm. Spring and Fall brush pickups are always the first full week of April and October, every year.
