The Streets Division maintains approximately seventy miles of roadway and four miles of alleys. This work includes street sweeping, pothole patching, crack filling, minor street repairs, grading of alleys, snow and ice control, and graffiti removal.
Villa Park is divided into eight sections for street sweeping purposes. Typically, staff members are able to sweep two sections per week - the entire village once per month - depending on the weather and the amount of leaves on the ground. Eight sections are swept in numerical order before the cycle repeats, starting back at section one. To see the eight section street sweeping map, click here.
Street sweeping begins in the spring after the last frost of the season, and ends in the fall just before the first. Please keep in mind that all street sweeping activities are heavily dependent on current weather conditions.
Snow and Ice Removal
The Public Works Department’s snow plowing operations start upon the accumulation of the first 2" of snow. Please refer to the map and list, which indicate the arterial streets. No parking is permitted on these “snow route” streets after a snowfall of 2" or more until after the storm has ended and all the snow route streets have been completely cleared. Violators will be subject to ticketing and towing.
