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

 

 

It was a bittersweet moment on Tuesday, February 21, as I recited my oath of office as Mayor of Powell.  While I was sad to say goodbye to former Mayor Don Hillman, I am excited to be the next mayor for a town I thoroughly love.

On to business.  Its planning time at the city which is exciting as we ponder the future.  Budget season is upon us where our work will focus on continuing to take care of city business, with a mindful eye toward preserving and protecting the reserves. Many projects, repairs and maintenance are also forthcoming, including this summer’s WYDOT partnership to remove the remaining medians and replace street lights on Colter Highway.  Engineering has begun on widening Absaroka Street; my thanks to taxpayers for supporting this sales tax initiative.  And if you look closely you may see a new Verizon tower emerge in the softball complex at Homesteader Park.  Spring will be busy as the weather breaks with pot hole repairs, leading to chip sealing streets this summer.  Of course, we cannot forget the street cleaning necessary as we recovery from a real Wyoming winter. Finally, here’s a warning for folks if they see me driving about.  My attention on city details has become somewhat acute as I move around town.  But I’ll try not count potholes or look at sewer drains – we have professionals for that. 

Moving forward, feel free to call or stop by city hall with your thoughts or concerns.
