The Transportation Division maintains the public right-of-way, such as city roads and some areas immediately adjacent to the roads. The Right-of-Way Maintenance Program provides the following services:
Tree pruning and removal
Road clean-up after damaging storms
Maintenance of Vegetation
City residents are required to keep vegetation that is on their property from encroaching into the city right-of-way. These items can obstruct the sight of traffic and may cause accidents. As the right-of-way width varies by street, the Transportation Division can answer any questions concerning the party responsible for maintaining vegetation.
Vegetation Encroaching on Power Lines
All power lines and the majority of street lights are maintained by the utility service provider (electric company) for the area in which the street light and lines are located. For the fastest service, residents should contact the appropriate electric company directly: SWEPCO / AEP at 1-888-216-3523 or Ozarks Electric Cooperative at 1-800-521-6144.
Please be prepared to provide the following information:
Address (If the light/power lines are not located at a specific address, please provide the closest available street address.)
Pole Number(s) for the street light(s) into which the vegetation is growing, and/or
Pole number(s) attached to the power lines into which the vegetation is growing
