Right-of-Way Mowing & Landscape
Providing for Rights of Way
The public works department provides mowing and related vegetation maintenance services along approximately 28 miles of Sky Valley streets and roadsides. During the summer, more effort goes toward mowing; in winter, more effort goes toward brush and tree side trimming. Mowing serves to maintain a safe zone adjacent to the road pavement, improves drainage of storm water from the road surface, and creates an attractive vista along road corridors. Tree limb and brush side trimming maintains clear sight lines for traffic signs and signals and safe vision distances at intersections.
Generally, streets are serviced every two to three weeks. Other associated services include storm damage clean-up, culvert clearance, pruning, street tree planting and maintenance, pavement patching, street sweeping, snow removal, and other support services for the Public Works Department.
