Summer street painting
Some of our streets will receive a fresh coat of paint this summer!
Public Works has crews out repainting crosswalks and stop lines, with the priority being the main streets, downtown areas, and around schools.
Please remember to drive safely and observe the cones on center lines and the "skip" lines to avoid wet paint. When driving, stay at least 50 feet back from the paint vehicle in case of sudden stops, and watch for cones at crosswalks and on legends that indicate wet paint. Wet paint will stick to your car if you drive over it.
