We regularly report the work done by Lynwood Public Works’ crews. But there is so much they do, that we don’t have enough time or space to let you know everything they do within a typical week.
Here is a short list of the work done by the Public Works Department:
- 269,350 square feet from a total of 13 alleys were cleared of illegally dumped items, trash and other debris (all alleys citywide are on a 10-to-14-day rotational schedule by area for service consistency – that’s about 94 miles of alleys a week),
- Eight alleys were fully cleared of weeds,
- 36 bus shelter locations citywide were pressure-washed,
- 148 potholes were repaired including 60 at St. Emydius Norton alley,
- 297 feet of curbs and 874 feet of street legends were painted,
- 938+ square feet of graffiti removed from City parks,
- Four households were invoiced for all Street staff time, equipment and fees because they were found to have illegally dumped on public property.
This is in addition to:
- Cleaning and maintaining all City buildings and facilities,
- Answering “Request for Service” inquiries,
- Preparing for City events such as the recent Nature Walk and Vaccine Clinics,
- Removing concert signs that are illegally posted throughout the City,
And so much more!
Keeping Lynwood clean and safe is a monumental job – please do your part by properly disposing of your unwanted goods!
