Blaine Public Works is organized into several divisions. The Streets Division is a team of 11 professionals, including a foreperson and two sign shop workers. They bring over 150 years of combined experience to the challenges they face.
Snow plowing and pothole patching are perhaps the most recognized services led by this team. When the team is called out to plow city streets after a snowstorm, they are joined by staff from all Blaine Public Works divisions to complete that important job. The team’s work extends to ensuring the integrity of our roads by patching open holes and creating smooth driving surfaces. They are also responsible for tree trimming and removal, particularly hazardous trees near roadways, and addressing high-priority concerns such as Emerald Ash Borer infestations.
Streets also handles many issues reported by Blaine residents. Removing debris and garbage dumped in city streets, fixing sidewalk problems, and downed signs. The sign shop is often upgrading existing signs and crafting new ones for various city departments. Their role extends to setting up warning signs and barriers as needed, contributing to the safety and organization of the city streets.
Experience, combined with important equipment, allows the Streets Division to tackle any challenge that comes their way with confidence. Keeping Blaine safe, well-maintained, and responsive to the evolving needs of all Blaine’s residents and visitors.
