Maintenance/Street Department

There are many different jobs that must be done in the Maintenance Division of the City of Maize. Here are just a few of them: We fill potholes with temporary asphalt patches, grade the dirt streets, and sweep the streets, clean culverts and ditches, clean storm sewer drains, check the water and sewer system daily to make sure everything if flowing as it should, check for street signs, stop signs, etc. Also as a part of this we mow most all the ditches along Maize Road, 53rd St., and all along the drainage ditches and along the Railroad track through town. We also maintain all city facilities.

We also pour concrete for sidewalks, curb and gutter, and drainage ditches.  In addition we maintain most all of the equipment that we use; regular service such as changing oil, grease, sharpening blades; just in general servicing all the equipment.
