Right-of-way (ROW) maintenance is the second line of defense in stormwater management right after street sweeping, followed by detention swales, followed by retention ponds like the Ecological Park, followed by the stormwater curb and gutters, underground transmittal lines and treatment centers, and filtration systems – all of these lines of defense (except for ROW) are managed by the Utility’s Storm Water Management Department.
It is the mission of the Right-of-Way Operations Division to provide high-quality right-of-way maintenance to ensure roadside vegetation is properly maintained to allow safe and efficient use of city streets and sidewalks by the public.
The Right-of-Way Operations Division consists of one supervisor and four staff members. This division is responsible for maintaining the City's Vegetation & Tree Program to ensure roadside vegetation is adequately maintained to allow safe and efficient use of city streets and sidewalks by the public. Weather permitting, routine maintenance is performed on a 2-3 week schedule. Additional responsibilities include management of maintenance contracts, maintenance of right-of-way, clearing vision triangles, preventing vegetative obstruction of traffic signage, perc/retention ponds, tree trimming/removal, and erosion control.
By working together, the Right-of-Way Operations Division also provides Event support and support to other divisions when necessary, in order to meet the goals of our city.
