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

 

   

Wow, is it summer already? Well, maybe ... and soon it will be fall. I hope all the folks in Powell are planning and scurrying around to enjoy as much of the season as possible.

 

At the city we are working in the same mode --- making sure baseball fields are in order, parks are clean, and, yes, tending to that boring thing we call infrastructure.

 

The Absaroka Street project is in full swing and we appreciate everyone's patience as they guess which cross street is open on any given day. Thankfully, the project is on schedule in spite of the rain.

 

The city's electric system took a hit with the recent fire, but it will be repairable. Our substation is close to 30 years old, but well maintained. While we experienced a major outage with some damage, we will get back to normal operations in a reasonable amount of time with few interruptions in service.

 

I believe our city employees handled this accident in a very professional manner and I would be remiss in not thanking all those who came to help. Our neighbors have been tremendously supportive from the second the explosion occurred -- including Western Area Power Authority, Garland Light & Power, Powell Fire Department, City of Cody, local businesses and many more. Folks jumped in to help in a variety of ways and we are very grateful. What a "trial by fire" to welcome Zack Thorington to his new position as city manager! Seriously, we welcome Zack aboard in his new role and look forward to his leadership for the City of Powell.

 

Crews are starting to slurry seal designated streets; you should have already received notice if your neighborhood is on the list.

 

As always keep an eye out as you drive around town, because lots of kids are at play and on bicycles -- and please stay off your phones. Also, take note that a few streets have new speed limits.

 

As July heats up, yards around the community are looking good -- and hopefully your barbecue events are not being ruined by the thunderstorms. As always, thank you for all you do to make Powell a beautiful and safe town.

 

(John Wetzel is the mayor of Powell.)
