The Traffic Division is comprised of 2 full time employees and 1 to 2 part time seasonal employees. The traffic division is responsible for the maintenance of streetlights, emergency weather sirens, street signs and posts and all painted street markings.
The summer months are very busy for the Traffic Division as this is the time of year the streets and parking lots receive their new coats of paint and striping. The Traffic Division is also called upon to assist with barricading streets for parades, special events and emergency situations.
