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

 

   

I am rightfully taking a little teasing for not writing my column Mayors Notes.  Following a busy election season, I started to write the column a few times and failed

to finish the task. So, third time’s a charm.

 

January brought one new face to Powell City Council and we were excited to swear Steve Lensegrav in and have him begin getting up to speed on city business.

 

Meanwhile, the city staff are keeping up with the regular chores like sanding roads, clearing snow, fixing water line breaks… ouch, February was cold! Lots of preparation for the summer season is getting covered as well including important equipment maintenance and repairs, rebuilding water meters, a small remodel to the electric department, refinishing picnic tables and much more. The administrative team is also busy preparing the next fiscal year budget; it’s not a fun chore and it commands a lot of attention to detail.

 

Of course, a few other tasks are hogging time and we couldn’t be more excited about them. The past work of visionaries who developed Water Tower West is steadily paying off for Powell as businesses build in this location and contribute to our economy.

 

The new hotel and convention center is moving forward with planning and coordination from both state and the local stakeholders. The project is a productive mix of public and private dollars to benefit our community in the future. Recently, a large convention committee toured the Park County Fairgrounds looking for a 2020 or 2021 meeting venue. The hotel will play a big part in their decision to gather in Powell. Fingers crossed, but it’s exciting to see community efforts leading to potential events that will fit well in Powell.

 

Club Dauntless is another big happening that will have a major and lasting impact on the health and welfare of Powell. I asked to be the first member when the club opens, so I guess my New Year’s resolution can wait until 2020. Seriously, we should all love it when private ventures invest in our community.

 

Your one cent sales tax dollars are at work as we renovate several blocks of Absaroka Street. The contractor is scheduled to begin construction in early April. The city is working hard to keep homeowners on the street informed of activity and we are asking for everyone’s patience and cooperation as the road will be closed intermittently. Please use care and planning while driving in the area and try to route around Absaroka Street as much as possible until completion. Most importantly, thank you for investing in the future of Powell!

 

The final major task we are focused on is finding the right individual to fill the large shoes soon to be vacated by our longtime and talented city administrator, Zane Logan, who is retiring in June.  A committee is currently involved in the interview process and will share information as appropriate.  I want to thank Zane for giving the City of Powell many years of quality work, as well as the necessary time to plan a smooth transition.

 

I promise warmer weather will come, so we can soon talk about street sweeping, ballfield striping, grass cutting and fishing derbies. I would love to enjoy some sunshine and watch soccer in the parks!
