Streets/Shop Department

 

There are over 37 miles of streets and 11 miles of alleys that the City of Powell Streets Department maintains. The Streets Department can be reached at 754-9513. Before calling with any questions you may wish to check our Frequently Asked Questions, Maintenance Schedule, or Other Information, which may answer your questions.

 

For your convenience to report potholes, or other maintenance items that you wish to inform us of, you can also e-mail us at: streets@cityofpowell.com but please use this only for normal correspondence, not for an emergency.

 

Along with the Streets Superintendent, your City of Powell Streets Department consists of a team of 5 highly qualified individuals who are responsible for the repair and maintenance of all City streets including: street repairs and pothole repairs, street signs, street markings, street rebuilds, alley maintenance and repairs, city owned concrete maintenance, and a myriad of other services and public response help.

 

Along with the above services there is also a full-time sweeper who sweeps all of the City streets and, in times of snow, sweeps the public walk paths that are designated in the City of Powell for snow sweep service.

 

The City Maintenance Shop is combined with the Streets Department. The City maintains numerous pieces of equipment for daily operations. The phone number at the City Shop is the same as for the Streets Department.

Message from the Mayor

 

   

This last week I was on vacation and out of cell phone range for a few days so
I wasn’t surprised to get a call from Zane Logan, Powell’s city administrator. I often
get updates on PR issues, power outages, service issues, etc. I answered the phone
with a cheery “What’s up Zane?” only to hear the very somber news that a great man
and member of our city family had passed away earlier that morning. I was shocked,
saddened and am still having trouble believing he’s gone.


Many years ago in the War Surplus store, I heard of a gentleman who hunted
elk every fall in Area 41 in the Big Horn Mountains, usually one specific drainage. I
was looking for help then as a rookie bow hunter. I contacted Bill Winters for advice
and he was willing to share information about hunting the area. Bill and I spoke a
few times, but it wasn’t until I became a councilman in Powell that I truly got the
privilege of being Bill Winters’ friend. As I did my city work, Bill often spoke up at
city meetings lending his vast institutional knowledge and solid advice with a
friendly smile.


Last December Bill announced he would retire in January 2018. I was happy
for Bill, but a little sad for the city. I wonder how many cold winter days and nights
he spent on streets of Powell making sure our water flowed and the frozen pipes
were fixed as efficiently as possible. I knew after over 36 years with the city, Bill’s
presence would be missed. He was torn about retirement when we spoke about his
position as a Powell representative to the Park County Drug Court. He was actually
making sure he could continue to serve in that capacity. He was only on the board
for a few short years, but he loved being involved and trying to make a difference.
Bill was not afraid to speak of his history with alcohol and those people who stepped
in to help him when he needed it. I respected him immensely for being open, honest
and always willing to pay it forward.


Even in retirement Bill was a regular visitor of city hall, stopping in to chat
and stay current on the city business he missed. Bill’s life was cut far too short on
July 8 and will be a loss to the all who knew him. My thoughts and prayers go out to
his family and friends.


Bill, you will be missed by many in the City of Powell.
