Roads and Highways

DSCN0809 BThe Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining the Town roads and right-of-way. This includes asphalt patching, minor street repairs, crack sealing, street sweeping, snow plowing, sign maintenance, and right-of-way mowing. Additional duties include, monthly brush pickup, weed control, graffiti removal, drainage maintenance, and working with other divisions to effectively and efficiently make use of available resources.

Town Maintenance:
Roadside Mowing - The Town maintains one tractor that has a 15 foot, rough cut, bat wing mower that is used for roadside mowing. The purpose of mowing rural ditches is to maintain drainage swales, to maintain sight distance for the driving public, to prevent brush from encroaching on the roadways, and to control noxious weeds. The Town mows 3 times a year, in late spring, summer and fall. One cycle of mowing can take about 2 to 3 weeks to complete. The Town only mows in the rural and undeveloped areas. Roadside mowing in residential and developed  areas is the responsibility of the land owner.

Street Sweeping -
The Town of Greenville sweeps  about 3 times a year (spring, summer and fall) in the urbanized, curb and gutter, areas. This helps to extend the life of stormwater ponds by removing solids from the roadway before they wash away into those ponds.

Signs - The Town is responsible for all road signs and street name signs on Town roads. The Town does routine inspections on all road and street name signs to be sure they are visible to the traveling public. 

Weed Control - During each growing season, one certified order to cut or destroy weeds shall be sent to the owner of the lot in violation. If within 10 days after receipt, the owner fails to comply with this order, the Town of Greenville shall destroy, remove or cut such vegetation in the most economical manner available. The owner will be billed for this service at the cost stated in the Town Fee Schedule.
